LSU gets off to a hot start, scoring a pair in the bottom of the first. The first four hitters each singled, including bunt hits by Laird and Bregman. Hale brought in the first run with a single through the left side, and Stevenson added one more with a SAC fly to left. Tigers lead 2-0 after 1

Laird opens the third with a leadoff single, then Bregman smacks one to the right side. But the Purdue 2B came up with a nice diving snag and doubled off Laird at first. Hale reached on an error but Scivicque K'd looking to end the inning. Tied 2-2 after 3

RE: LIVE GAME THREAD: LSU vs. Purdue (Game 3) 


Purdue gets runners on the corners thanks to a two-out HBP and single to left. McMullen threw back to second instead of third, allowing the runner to take another base. But Glenn got the next batter to pop out to 2B and escape the jam. Game tied 2-2, Mid 4

LSU breaks the tie in the bottom of the fourth. Stevenson got it started with a leadoff walk and Moore moved him to second with a SAC bunt. Chris Chinea drove him home with a double to right-center, making it 3-2 after 4. Alden Cartwright's going in to pitch for LSU

RE: LIVE GAME THREAD: LSU vs. Purdue (Game 3) 


LSU strikes for a big three-run inning int he fifth. Laird and Bregman each singled to start it off, and some aggressive base running put both in scoring position with nobody out. Hale brought in the first run with a groundout to short. Scivicque added another with a single to left, and Stevenson tacked on the other with his third triple of the season, extending his hitting streak to 14 games in the process. LSU couldn't add anymore though, as Moore's safety squeeze attempt didn't get far enough from the plate. Catcher made the tag at home then doubled off Moore at first. Tigers do lead 6-2 after 5

Purdue scored a run off Nate Fury in the seventh. The leadoff man got a single then Fury hit the next batter. Both runners would eventually steal to move into scoring position, setting up a SAC fly that made it 6-3. Fury got the next batter to line out to Hale and he turned the double play to end the inning. Tigers up 6-3 at the stretch

LSU goes down quietly in the seventh. Laird got a leadoff walk but Hale drilled a liner right at 3B with Laird in motion, resulting in a double play. LSU leads 6-3 after 7, Henri Faucheaux coming on to pitch

LSU adds an insurance run in the eight. Kade Scivcique started it with a leadoff single, and pinch-runner Jake Fraley moved to second on a SAC bunt. Chinea sent a slow grounder up the middle for an infield single, an errant throw brought in the unearned run. Tigers now lead 7-3 and Parker Bugg will come back out for the ninth with Joe Broussard waiting in the pen

Bugg allows only a one-out single and Ks the final batter to end the game. LSU wins 7-3 to complete the sweep and move to 14-2 on the season
