LSU's bats silenced in series opener against Texas A&M
Posted on 3/30/2017 8:47:00 PM.
For the second straight start, LSU's Alex Lange pitched as well as you can expect an ace to pitch. But for the second straight outing it was not enough to help the Tigers get a win. The Bayou Bengals only mustered four hits in a 4-0 loss to Texas A&M.
 
It's LSU's fourth loss in the last five games and the Tigers fall to 4-3 in SEC play.

Lange's only mistake was a two-run home run to Nick Choruby in the 5th inning. The junior right-hander ended up pitching eight innings, giving up two runs and scattering nine hits. Lange had 12 strike outs.
 
Lange's record is now 3-3. Last Friday he was tagged with a loss despite giving up one run in a 1-0 loss to Florida.
 
Matthew Beck surrendered the other two A&M runs while pitching in relief in the 9th inning.  
 
Offensively, LSU did very little against Aggies starting pitcher Brigham Hill (5-2). The Aggies ace tossed eight shutout innings and struck out seven.
 
The Tigers did not have a runner reach second base until the 9th inning.  
 
Josh Smith, Beau Jordan, Zach Watson and Cole Freeman were the only LSU hitters to get a hit. The Tigers top four hitters in the line-up, Freeman, Antoine Duplantis, Kramer Robertson and Greg Deichmann, were a combined 1-for-15. Deichmann struck out three times. 
 
The Tigers were also sloppy in the field as they committed three errors.
 
LSU will look to even the series on Friday night. Jared Poche (5-1, 0.90) starts for the Tigers. Texas A&M will counter with sophomore right-hander Stephen Kolek (1-1, 5.23 ERA). First pitch is at 8 PM.

    After meeting separately with Secretary of Defense James Mattis, both Sens. Lindsey Graham and John McCain said the military should do more to keep members of Congress aware of its counterterrorism operations around the world. Sen. Graham told reporters that one of the open questions surrounding the ambush in Niger, which killed four Americans, is whether it was the result of an intelligence failure.“It’s too early to say. That’s exactly the questions we should be asking ourselves. In war you fail, you make mistakes and the whole goal is to learn from your mistakes and not repeat them.” Graham said Sen. McCain will likely hold a hearing on the operation, and the strategy more broadly, next week. A spokeswoman for the Senate Armed Services Committee did not comment.Graham also said the military will likely change its rules of engagement in Africa, and anywhere else they need to be changed, so that forces can hit targets based on their status – for example, a member of the...
