LSU Baseball Scores 17 Runs In Game 2 Win Over Maine
2022-04:57 UTC on February 19, 2022 A home run and five RBI from second baseman Cade Doughty propelled third-ranked LSU to a 17-8 victory against Maine on Saturday in Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field. LSU is ranked third in the nation. BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The city of Batons Rogue is preparing to host the Super Bowl. A home run and five RBI from second baseman Cade Doughty propelled third-ranked LSU to a 17-8 victory against Maine on Saturday in Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field. LSU is ranked third in the nation.
The teams will meet in the series finale on Sunday at 1 p.m.
The game will be carried on the SEC Network +.
The Tigers scored in each of the first seven innings of the game, highlighted by Doughty’s three-run homer in the first inning, which capped a four-run first inning outburst.
LSU’s record of scoring runs in 12 consecutive innings through the first two games of the season came to an end in the eighth inning of Saturday’s game against Florida.
As LSU coach Jay Johnson put it, “I think we had a much more aggressive approach at the plate today.” “We were in command, and we have some tremendous guys who, when they’re in the proper frame of mind, do an excellent job of controlling the strike zone and capitalizing on pitcher errors.” “Cade Doughty has done an excellent job of strengthening his offensive game, and nothing he does surprises me anymore.
He is a really great athlete who has matured and evolved; he is in his prime right now, and it is entertaining to watch him play.” Third baseman Jack Merrifield and designated hitter Braydon Jobert each drove in three runs, as did rightfielder Jacob Berry, who hit his first two home runs of the season and drove in three runs.
With three earned runs on four hits and one walk, Ma’Khail Hilliard took the loss in the opening four innings for LSU.
With seven runs – six of them earned – on seven hits in three innings, Maine starter Noah Lewis (0-1) was unable to prevent the loss.
On the mound, Johnson stated, “Ma’Khail got us off to a nice start today.” He got us out of the first two innings fast and then stalled Maine’s momentum with a scoreless fourth inning.
“I thought Javen Coleman was great; he really pummeled the strike zone in his three innings of work and was extremely strong,” said a jubilant Sullivan.

By The Numbers
In a must-win game, the Tigers put together one of their most prolific offensive performances. Rarely does the LSU baseball team find itself in this situation, battling for a postseason place in the final few games of the regular season. The Tigers, on the other hand, looked and played like a team fighting for its playoff life, leaping all over Alabama from the get-go in a 13-5 rubber match victory that won the series victory over the Crimson Tide in Birmingham. On Sunday afternoon, it was hard to determine whether the LSU offense had been in a funk throughout the weekend against the Crimson Tide or whether it had been a fluke.
- Cade Doughty launched a two-run home run in the first game, followed by a solo blast from Drew Bianco in the second, and a trio of doubles in the third inning had Alex Box reeling by the conclusion of the second inning.
- DiGiacomo would smash two home runs for the Tigers on the day, while Crews and Tre Morgan both collected three hits as part of the team’s offensive blitz.
- The game’s coach, Paul Mainieri, commented afterward, “That was as good an all-around performance as we’ve had all year.” “We were well aware that it would be a significant victory for us and something we needed to accomplish,” DiGiacomo added.
- While the Alabama offense was wreaking havoc on each pitch that crossed the plate, Hilliard was doing the exact same thing to the other team’s batters.
- As many Alabama batters struggled to figure out his curveball, he was able to land it on them.
- He also received some assistance from some outstanding infield play, notably from Bianco and Tre Morgan.
- This is a really pleasant feeling, being out there with the boys and enjoying these moments with them,” she says.
- Hilliard’s day came to an end after five innings after surrendering three runs on four hits and striking out seven batters.
- “We wanted to keep the momentum continuing, and we knew we needed to score a lot of points.
If you ask Ma’Khail and myself, we would have preferred to have been doing it the entire time, but it’s wonderful that we’re becoming hot at the perfect moment.” With a 9-3 lead in hand, the Tigers would turn to freshman Garrett Edwards, who got into a little difficulty in the sixth inning, allowing a run but stranding a couple of runners on base, before pitching a clean seventh inning to close out the game for the Tigers.
Ty Floyd, a fellow freshman, would come in and pitch the final two innings, allowing only one home run while striking out three batters in his stint.
The first is a midweek matchup against Northwestern State on Tuesday, which will serve as the team’s final home contest of the season. LSUsports provided the photo for this article.
LSU Baseball Advances to Super Regional With 9-8 “Game for the Ages” Win Over Oregon
Because, in true LSU fashion, the Tigers progressed to the super regionals with an extremely insane conclusion, defeating Oregon 9-8 in the last seconds of the game, which was broadcast around the world. As a result of the victory, LSU achieved a feat that has only been accomplished five times since 2014: winning a regional after losing its opening game of the weekend. In the eighth inning, LSU was looking for any possible opportunity to get Cade Doughty home from third base, and they got it.
- That’s when the craziness began to set in.
- However, Somers made one too many efforts and was tagged for a game-changing balk, which resulted in the go-ahead run being scored.
- “It was an incredible victory for our squad, and it will be remembered for a long time,” coach Paul Mainieri remarked.
- However, it was difficult for me to remain cool and maintain my composure.
- As a result of the 9-8 victory, LSU became the school’s first road regional champion since the 1989 season under Skip Bertman.
- After pleading with Mainieri for two days to be given the ball in this type of circumstance in order to finish the game out, Marceaux came through with a courageous effort.
- “I’m overjoyed for the men, overjoyed for the coach, and overjoyed for this squad.” For lack of better words, it is difficult to fully convey the impact outfielder Gavin Dugas had for the Tigers in their regional semifinal victory against Oregon.
The Tigers returned to that plan on Monday, hitting three home runs, the most notable of which came from Dugas, who hit a pair of solo shots.
He’s had an outstanding season and was named the MVP of the tournament, which he properly deserved, according to coach John Mainieri.
“There’s been a lot of positive energy flowing through this squad the last couple of days, and that’s what I owe the most of our success to.” For all of the weekend, LSU has depended on Dugas and Dylan Crews to produce runs, with the duo accounting for 10 of the team’s first 22 runs.
LSU, on the other hand, went into the game knowing it would have to put together its pitching staff.
Ma’Khail Hilliard, who had thrown 65 pitches in his previous start just two days prior, only lasted one inning on short rest.
Floyd struggled with command in his lone appearance, and while Fowler’s command seemed good in his two innings of work, he made a costly error by allowing Aaron Zavala to hit a two-run home run, which gave the Pac 12 Player of the Year the game-winning run.
With two shutout innings pitched by freshman Will Hellmers, LSU was able to reverse a 5-2 deficit into a 6-5 lead by the seventh inning, which was completed off by a two-run home run by Drew Bianco to put the Tigers in the lead.
On several occasions, he put his body on the line and made spectacular grabs to preserve the lead on the purple and gold from blowing up in his face.
In what proved to be an exhilarating back and forth encounter, the Tigers emerged victorious and ensured that Paul Mainieri’s employment would be extended for at least another week. LSUsports provided the photo for this article.
