Texas trounces Tigers to salvage final game of the series

February 25, 2018 - 4:24 pm


14th ranked LSU scored 23 runs in the first two games as they went into Sunday's contest looking to sweep 22nd ranked Texas. But Tigers' bats were shutdown by Longhorns pitching, meanwhile LSU got another shaky start from its starting pitching in a 11-1 loss.
Todd Peterson allowed five runs in four innings and the sophomore from Florida now has a 9.00 ERA after two starts. 

Sophomore right-hander Will Reese also got roughed up, as he allowed three runs and only recorded one out. 
Texas starting pitcher Blair Henley was really good as he scattered six hits over six innings. He walked three and struck out three and did not allow any runs. 
LSU center fielder Antoine Duplantis went 3-for-4 and drove in the only run of the game with a double in the 9th inning.
Chris Reid came off the bench and had two hits. He might see more playing time at third base, because Jake Slaughter went 0-for-4 and he's hitting .043 on the season. 
The loss drops LSU's record 4-3. The Tigers will host Grambling State on Tuesday and then visit Southeastern Louisiana on Wednesday.
