After a rough weekend against Notre Dame, LSU Coach Paul Mainieri was looking for a solid start from Cam Sanders. That didn't happen, but LSU quickly recovered and cruised to a 14-6 victory over UNO at Alex Box Stadium on Wednesday night.
The game got off to a horrible start for Sanders and the Tigers. The right-hander from Thibodaux failed to record an out and gave up three runs.
But relief pitcher Trent Vietmeier stopped the bleeding and threw three innings, allowing one run so LSU's bats can get going.
The Tigers (2-2) scored three runs in the first inning as UNO's starter Zach Thompson also failed to record an out. LSU also added a run in the 2nd inning.
The Bayou Bengals scored four runs in the 6th inning to take the lead, four more in the 7th inning and two more in the 8th inning.
Ten different LSU hitters had at least one hit. And ten different Tiger hitters had at least one RBI.
Antoine Duplantis and Daniel Cabrera each drove in two runs and had two hits to lead the way.
Starting center fielder Zach Watson did not play after suffering an injury in batting practice. The injury is not considered serious.
LSU will host 19th ranked Texas for a three-game series that will start on Friday at the Box.
