However Tech once again plated two runs to regain the lead at 8-5 and LSU's offense was tasked with responding. The Tigers would score three runs in the fifth inning and five more in the sixth and seventh before lightning delays would force officials to call the game early.

Tiger firstbaseman Tre' Morgan continued his hot streak as he finished the night 4-5 with 3 runs scored and two RBI.
