LSU storms back to defeat Florida 10-6 and avoid a sweep

By JAMES MORAN | Tiger Rag Associate Editor

LSU’s bats came to life just in the nick of time to avert a sweep.

Listless at the plate all weekend, Tigers scored eight times in the game’s final two innings to earn a dramatic come-from-behind 10-6 victory over Florida to salvage a three-game weekend series in Gainesville.

Trailing 6-2 heading into the eight inning, LSU got two-run home runs from Josh Smith, Beau Jordan and Cole Freeman to take the lead. Jordan drove in four runs on the afternoon.

Reliever Nick Bush worked the seventh inning and picked up the win in relief and Caleb Gilbert retired the last six outs in order to nail down his third save as LSU’s interim closer.

With the win the Tigers move to 18-7 and 4-2 in the Southeastern Conference. LSU will be back in action on Tuesday night against Tulane before hosting Texas A&M for a three-game series set to begin Thursday.
