No. 10 LSU wins pitcher’s duel in Baton Rouge 1-0 over State


It was a pitcher’s duel Saturday night in Baton Rouge, as the Mississippi State Bulldogs (26-11, 2-6 SEC) were just edged out by the 10th-ranked LSU Tigers (30-7, 6-2 SEC), 1-0.
Kat Moore, Olivia Golden and Sarai Niu each earned a hit in game two of the weekend, with Moore extending her career-high reached base streak to 12-straight games. The Dogs put runners on the base paths in four different innings, but the Tigers were able to keep State at bay.
Holly Ward tossed 6.0 innings of work, striking out two and walking three while giving up just three hits and the game’s lone run being unearned.
Ward kept the Tigers quiet for the first four innings, not allowing a single runner to cross home plate and giving up only two hits. From the second to the fourth inning, Ward retired eight batters-in-a-row to keep the game scoreless.
LSU tallied the game’s lone run in the bottom of the fifth on a two-out RBI single. Ward was able to get out of the inning without another run scoring a rung up her third 1-2-3 inning in the sixth to finish her night.
The Bulldogs got a pair of runners on in the sixth thanks to a Moore single and a fielding error on the Tigers. However, LSU’s defense once again held strong and closed out the game to earn the 1-0 victory.
