LSU baseball opened this doubleheader day with great optimism, having won game 1 of the series 2-1 over Texas A&M.  Unfortunately, LSU lost game 2 to the Aggies 6-4 after a furious 8th and 9th inning rally. The Tigers just came up short.  

LSU committed an uncharacteristic 5 errors in the field.  Aggies starter Asa Lacy dominated the Tigers lineup for six innings allowing only 1 hit.  

The Tigers got going in the later innings pounding out 8 more hits and 4 runs.  LSU had Texas A&M exactly where they wanted them in the bottom of the 9th with the tying run on second base with no outs.  The Tigers had their best hitters set to hit and possibly tie or win the game. OF Zach Watson struck out, as did Antoine Duplantis. Third baseman Chris Reid almost tied the game with a drive to right-center field that ended up as a long fly ball out.  LSU went 5 for 15 with runners in scoring position in the loss. 

LSU will play game 2 of the double header (game 3 of the series) tonight at 7pm.
