LSU defeated Alabama 3-0 in the Tigers’ first game of the 2013 SEC Tournament. After a three-run bottom of the first for LSU, it was a pitchers’ duel from that point forward. However the Alabama Crimson Tide was unable to put up any offense against LSU left-handed pitcher Cody Glenn who was fantastic on the mound.
““It was a very well played game by both teams. It was also a very well pitched game by both teams. We had a nice first inning against Charley Sullivan. It looked like we could have a big day, and he regrouped like the great competitor that he is. I have a lot of respect for him” said LSU head coach Paul Mainieri. Continue reading
The Arkansas Razorbacks handed the Ole Miss Rebels their first loss of the SEC tournament as they defeated them 2-1 on Wednesday morning. The game was a pitchers’ duel with a run scored by each team in the first inning and none following until Brian Anderson scored the final run in extra innings on a wild pitch.
“It was a very well played game. Both pitchers and bullpens did a tremendous job. We got out of some jams. We both hit some line drives. We had the unfortunate play that would have been a two-run single and given us a two-run lead going into the ninth and it hits a runner in the foot. It just figures that the game would end on a wild pitch, the most exciting play in baseball next to the sacrifice fly. From our standpoint, we were glad to see it,” said Razorback head coach Dave Van Horn. Continue reading

#6 Ole Miss (37-19, 15-14)
The Rebels have been a bit up and down throughout the season, however when Ole Miss is on their A-game, they can compete with the best.
