MSU nips Hogs in SEC tourney; Razorbacks play Auburn at 4:30 pm today

Diamond Hogs Power to SEC Tourney Championship Game

Jared Poche' (10-3) allowed only two hits in six innings for LSU.

It marks the first time in program history - which dates back to 1933 - that Auburn has been no-hit in a game.

The late-season surge for the LSU baseball team continued Sunday with a 4-2 victory against Arkansas that secured for the Tigers a 12th SEC Tournament championship.

LSU (43-17) increased its win streak to 11 straight games, and the Tigers have won 16 of their past 18 contests.

The Tigers (42-17) will try for their 12th league tournament championship today against Arkansas.

The Razorbacks made things interesting in the ninth against LSU closer Hunter Newman. A Calvary Day School graduate, Newman earned his 10th save.

Auburn's offense was almost non-existent as well as the Tigers were no-hit by a combination of three Arkansas pitchers (Dominic Taccolini, Matt Cronin and Josh Alberius).

The Arkansas Razorbacks put together a dominating performance no-hitting the Auburn Tigers to go along with three home runs for Chad Spanberger to beat the Tigers 12-0 on Thursday night.

Greg Deichmann homered twice to help LSU beat SC 11-0 on Saturday in the SEC Baseball Tournament semifinals. A Josh Smith single knocked in the second run and a Beau Jordan sacrifice capped the three run inning. I told him earlier this week, I'm like, 'hey man every time you get the rock the rest of the year you're pitching for a championship.

Security Council resolutions", Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in a statement posted on the Foreign Ministry's website on Tuesday. Nearly a month ago, Washington began discussions with China on strengthening United Nations sanctions .

Spanberger was named tournament MVP, and also said he was surprised by the move.

"Honestly, I thought it was a clean play", Freeman said. For Cole, he now has four on the year and has been hitting over.400 for the tournament.

LSU out-hit SC 14-3 with four extra base hits accounting for seven of the 11 runs. Fletcher needed to see just two pitches from Bulldog starter Jacob Billingsley before unloading his 11th home run of the year to break the 1-1 tie.

Centerfielder Dominic Fletcher came up throwing and almost beat Duplantis at the plate, but his slide came in just ahead of Grant Koch's tag to make it 4-1.

The Hogs hit four home runs in the game, two by red-hot Chad Spanberger and one each by Eric Cole and Dominic Fletcher. "I have the utmost respect for Dave Van Horn, his staff and all their players". Arkansas is seeking its first.

Right-hander Cannon Chadwick came in and walked Nick Coomes on an eight-pitch at-bat to force in LSU's first run. "That was what caused the problem. He pulled the second baseman off the bag and he slid right into him".

"There was no cheap shot there, no intent". I just think Spanberger is playing on another planet right now.

Duplantis doubled, singled and scored twice for LSU. Later in the 6th inning, Duplantis would score from 2nd on a Nick Coomes sac fly to center that nearly resulted in a triple play if not for Duplantis' excellent slide at the plate. He left in the second inning after allowing 8 runs on 7 hits, including 3 home runs, and recording only 3 outs.
