Then later in the inning, Amanda Sanchez smacked a ball to deep left that would score Doyle and give LSU a 3-0 lead.
In the 5th inning, Shelbi Sunseri hit her 7th home run of the year with two runners on base to extend LSU's lead to 5.
That wouldn't be enough as Stanford would rally in the top of the 6th scoring 7-runs and pulled off the win 7-5.
