After falling 14-3 to No. 3 California, the No. 25 LSU softball team rolled to a 13-0 five-inning victory over Utah State Sunday on the final day of the Louisville Slugger Desert Classic at Stephanie Lynn Craig Park in Las Vegas. The 13 runs for LSU (4-4) were the most runs scored by the Tigers since a 15-2 victory over Nicholls State on April 14, 2010, while the 12 hits were a season-high. Ashley Langoni went 2-for-3 and drove in three RBIs highlighted by a two-run home run. She also scored four runs to tie a program single-game record. The last LSU player to score four runs in a game was Simone Heyward versus Louisiana Tech on Feb. 11, 2011. Lauren Houston, Dylan Supak and Tammy Wray also picked up two RBIs apiece. For Supak, she turned in a 2-for-3 effort to claim her first career hits and RBIs. Rachele Fico fired her second one-hitter of the season and improved to 3-1. She fanned six batters against zero walks. The Tigers raced out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning and made the most of four walks. Heyward and Houston drew free passes with the bases loaded to plate the runs. LSU filled the bases again during the second inning, and Wray delivered a two-out, two-run single to centerfield to double the Tiger advantage to 4-0. The Tigers exploded for a season’s best seven runs in the third inning. LSU sent 12 batters to the plate. Allison Falcon along with Houston Langoni, Santos and Supak provided the RBIs. Supak’s two-run single down the left line capped the frame and vaulted the Tigers ahead by an 11-0 margin.

Three batters later, Ashleigh Kuhn lifted a sacrifice fly to straight-away centerfield to make it 6-2.
