LSU Baseball tops Rice 4-2, advances to Regional Finals
It may have taken three days to get through two games, but the LSU Tiger baseball team finds themselves right where they want to be, and that's playing in the Baton Rouge Regional finals at Alex Box Stadium on Monday.
LSU beat Rice 4-2 in the Tigers second game of the weekend, played on the third day of the tournament.
LSU jumped out to an early 4-0 lead in the first inning when Greg Deichmann roped a shot down the right field line that rolled under the bullpen bench. Rice outfielder Charlie Warren made a play on the ball after initially throwing his hands in the air to signal an unplayable ball. Once Warren attempted to field the ball it by rule became live allowing Deichmann and the three Tiger runners on base to score.
Rice battled back with solo runs in the 5th and 6th inning.
However following a near one hour rain delay LSU starting pitcher Alex Lange came back out on the mound to shut down the Owls, striking out ten batters allowing just two runs on five hits through eight innings.
The Baton Rouge Regional is delayed a full day due to the weather, and LSU will be back in action in the late game at 7 p.m. on Monday, with Rice playing in an elimination game against Southeastern at 2 p.m. on Monday.
