LSU survives Bama in SEC tournament

Posted: Updated:

Tyler Moore and Ty Ross had run-scoring hits with two outs in the ninth to lead LSU to a 3-2 victory over Alabama Friday in a Southeastern Conference tournament elimination game.

The Tigers (50-9) face Arkansas in the semifinals on Saturday.

They got three straight two-out hits to take the lead in the final inning. Christian Ibarra singled and pinch-runner Jared Foster scored on Moore's double. Reliever Jay Shaw replaced Mike Oczypok and gave up Ross's RBI single.

LSU's Chris Cotton then needed just 11 pitches to strike out all three batters in the bottom of the ninth for his 14th save. Nate Fury (2-1) pitched a scoreless eighth in relief of Ryan Eades for the win.

 

Alabama's Oczypok (4-2) allowed 10 hits in 8-2/3 innings. 

Alabama had taken a 2-1 lead in the fifth when Mikey White produced an RBI triple and scored on Brett Booth's single.
