OXFORD, Miss. (WAFB) - The No. 1 LSU baseball team got a three-run homer in the top of the ninth to edge Ole Miss and sweep the series on Sunday, April 23.

The Tigers (32-7, 12-5 SEC) came away with the 7-6 victory over the Rebels (21-19, 3-15 SEC).

Pinch hitter Hayden Travinski played hero by blasting his first home run of the season with two on and two out in the top of the ninth.

“Hayden has a lot of power, obviously,” said head coach Jay Johnson. “He’s been improving as we’ve been going along. He was hurt in the fall, but he kept working. It’s a combination of baseball improvement, along with maturity and attitude. He’s been a team guy this whole time. He’s a big reason we won the game yesterday, and obviously a big reason we won today. I’m really proud of him and happy for him.”

Riley Cooper (2-2) was credited with the win.
