Corbello Makes Impressive Debut With Lady Tigers

From LSU Athletics:

Game One: Minnesota 1, LSU 0

In her first start as an LSU Tiger, pitcher Baylee Corbello pitched a gem by going all seven innings and becoming the fifth pitcher in program history to strike out at least 10 batters in her first appearance, but the only run she gave up in the game would prove to be the difference as No. 17 LSU fell to the Minnesota Golden Gophers 1-0 in first contest of the night for the team at the Tiger Classic.

Launching over 110 pitches during the game, the freshman from Lake Charles went toe-to-toe with Minnesota's (2-0) Sara Moulton who earned the win by limiting LSU (0-2) to just two hits in the game, striking out nine with three walks. Corbello held the Golden Gophers hitless for the rest of the game, with just one runner advancing to second base.

Corbello nearly worked out of a jam early, as two opening singles put two runners in scoring position. After another walk, the true freshman settled down and struck out the next two to relieve some of the pressure. Unfortunately, a wild pitch allowed the first Gopher run to score, but not before she came back and struck out her third batter of the inning to end the threat.

Andrews was the first real threat for the Tigers in the bottom half of the first, using an infield single and throwing error by Moulton to advance to second. After a Blades strikeout and Bell groundout, Andrews found her way at third base and a walk to Jaquish put Tigers at the corners. Unfortunately, Corbello flew out to left to close the inning.

The pitcher tried to give the offense a boost as she sliced a single through the infield and into center for the Tigers' second hit of the night with one out in the fourth inning. However, a fielder's choice forced out the pitcher at second and ended any chance LSU had of tying the game thereafter.

Down to their final outs, consecutive infield ground balls put LSU on the brink with only one out left. Allison Falcon got walked on four straight pitches to give the Tigers some life. Alex Boulet came on to pinch run for Falcon, and stole second. Tammy Wray went to the wired and reached first on a 3-2 walk to put two on, but a strikeout ended the game.

    A new veterans memorial is in the works for the town of DeQuincy.

    It will be a replication of "Raising the Flag" in Japan during World War II, and will honor area veterans like the Clifton brothers, who returned to their hometown of DeQuincy after serving in the war.

    Gage Meche is doing really well in his recovery, according to his family. This week KPLC met up with the 7 year old to deliver some special gifts our viewers have sent in.
