Baton Rouge Regional: LSU 12, Texas Southern 1

A walk, a bunt attempt, a double-steal and a home run. That’s just the bottom of the first, when LSU jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first game of the Baton Rouge Regional. The homestanding Tigers broke loose again in the fifth and sixth innings, and Texas Southern got on the board in the top of the sixth with an Earnest Rhone home run. Alex Box was filled with 6,536 fans as LSU advanced in the winner’s bracket, where it will face the winner of the Southern Miss-New Orleans matchup Saturday. The SWAC Tournament champions will face the loser of that game in an elimination contest.
