Tigers take series opener vs Alabama
Posted on 4/27/2017 9:31:00 PM.
Before the LSU players boarded the bus for Tuscaloosa, they made it known that it's now time for this team to start stacking victories. They lived up to that promise on Thursday with a 8-2 win over Alabama.
 
The victory improves the Tigers record to 11-8 in the SEC, while the Crimson Tide falls to a hapless 2-17.  


LSU got off to a good start by scoring three runs in the 1st inning. Nick Coomes and Kramer Robertson each drove in runs with singles and Josh Smith made it 3-0, with an RBI ground out.
 
That was offense for Tigers starting pitcher Alex Lange. The junior right-hander was solid as he struck out 10 in 7.1 innings. His only mistake was a two-run homer in the 2nd inning, which cut LSU's lead to 3-2.
 
LSU added runs in the 3rd and 4th innings. Jordan Romero had an RBI single and Coomes a run scoring ground out.
 
The Tigers put the game out of reach in the 9th inning as catcher Michael Papierski walked with the bases loaded and Antoine Duplantis brought home the final two runs of the game with a two-run double. 
 
The series resumes Friday night at 6 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...
