Seventh-ranked LSU (4-0) battled McNeese State (1-2) from start to finish and pulled away in a five-run sixth inning to defeat the Cowboys 11-4 in a Wednesday afternoon matinee at Alex Box Stadium.

 

The 44 runs for LSU over the opening four games is the most for the Tigers since the 2005 team tallied 46 to start its campaign. The Tigers return to action on Friday at 7 p.m. to begin a three-game series with Appalachian State at Alex Box Stadium.

 

Six LSU pitchers combined to work the game for the Tigers. The hurlers struck out nine and forced the Cowboys to strand 11 runners.

 

Freshman left-hander Cody Glenn (1-0) recorded his first career victory as a Tiger. Glenn pitched three innings, allowed three hits, two runs, two earned, two walks and struck out four.

 

Joe Broussard started the game for LSU, permitted three hits and one run and struck out one in two innings of work.

 

Five Tigers collected two hits - Austin Nola drove in three and had a double, Grant Dozar hit a solo home run, and Jackson Slaid had a single and a triple to lead LSU.

 

Nola and Mason Katz are now tied for the team lead with six RBI.

 

“We started out a little slow at the plate in the first inning, but I was very pleased with the way we swung the bats today,” said LSU coach Paul Mainieri. “We had seven extra-base hits, which was great to see from our offense.”

 

The Cowboys struck first and got on the board in the top of the second. Broussard hit Nick Eubanks after registering the first out of the frame. Taylor Drake knocked a single up the middle and advanced Eubanks to second. Collin Todd ripped a single between the shortstop and third to load the bags.

 

Tyler Klouser’s dribbler to the pitcher brought home Eubanks on a fielder’s choice. Broussard forced Andrew Guillotte to fly out to right to strand two runners in scoring position and contain the damage.

 

The Tigers responded in the bottom of the second. Back to back opposite field singles by Katz and Slaid put runners on first and second. Jones blasted a shot to deep right center that was tracked down, but permitted the both runners to tag up and advance.

 

Nola stepped up with two runners in scoring position and brought them home on a single up the middle to give LSU its first lead of the game.

 

Glenn walked the first batter he faced to lead off the third. The Tigers’ defense made a clutch play behind him, turning the team’s first double play on the season. Casey Yocom scooped up the hard hit grounder, flipped it to Nola on second and he tossed it to Katz on first to complete the bang-bang play.

 

“I thought both Austin Nola and Casey Yocom played great games today, both at the plate and of defense,” Mainieri said. “The double play in the third inning really sparked us early in the game.”

 

However, Michael Sullivan hit a two-out single under Yocom’s glove at second and Glenn hit Skylar Barrentine to put two on. Eubanks drilled a line drive into the left center gap to plate the runners and put McNeese ahead 3-2. Glenn pitched his way out of the jam and struck out Drake on four pitches.

 

The top of the order for LSU got things going in the bottom half of the third and sparked the Tigers to grab the lead for good. Hanover smacked a leadoff double to left and scored on Yocom’s double to left.

 

Rhymes kept the rally going and moved Yocom to third on a base knock to right center. Katz blasted a line drive to the deepest part of the park in straight away center. Yocom reached home safely on the hit, but Rhymes was thrown out at the plate and Katz moved to third on the throw.

 

Grant Dozar extended the lead for LSU to 5-3 in the bottom half of the fourth when he pulled a two-out dinger into the right field seats.

 

In the top of the fifth, Nola made a great play at short to register the first out of the frame. He fielded the ball behind the bag at second, spun around and fired a throw to first to beat the runner. Glenn allowed a two-out walk, but struck out two more and posted his second scoreless inning in the process.

 

Joey Bourgeois stepped into the game in the top of the sixth and kept McNeese off the board. The righty set the Cowboys down in order and recorded the last two outs via strike out to preserve the 5-3 lead.

 

LSU added insurance runs in the bottom of the sixth. Jones drew a one-out walk, stole second and moved to third on a throwing error. Nola beamed a double to right center, which extended the lead to 6-3. The hit chased McNeese’s Michael Clemmons in the process.

 

McNeese inserted lefty Tyler Erickson to matchup against Moore, but Moore smacked a single up the middle to move Nola to third. The Cowboys pulled Erickson and replaced him with Caleb Miller after Jared Foster was selected to pinch hit for Dozar.

 

Foster plated Nola and moved Moore to second on a line drive single just in front of the center fielder. Hanover’s contact back to the pitcher was fielded and misfired to third. Moore and Foster trotted home on the error and Hanover reached second on the fielder’s choice.
