WP Rachele Fico 6H, 4BB. LP Jackie Traina 7H.LSU and Alabama started the night tied for the lead in the SEC West. The Tigers won a game of tremendous momentum swings.  LSU took the lead bottom 4th on Kloss 2-run homer.

Lafaele singled to left, a dying liner Blades couldn’t handle. Hays hbp, and Bama had bases load.  Surprisingly, Fico, who thrives on location, walked the next two batters, score tied, bases still, loaded.  But, McCleney hit a line drive at Fico.  Bottom 7th: LSU down in order.  With Bama fans in full outcry, the Tide loaded the bases again.  Traina struck out. Spencer fouled out to left. Hays fouled out to 3rd, the Tide stranded three.  Now, Tiger fans roared.  Heyward singled, Andrews walked, Blades forced Andrews at 2nd. Bell, the leading slugger for the Tigers, was given a pass, loading the bases. Falcon popped to 2nd. Two out,  Simmons singled, rbi.  LSU is 13-6 SEC, Alabama is 12-7.
