LSU, the tournament's No. 2 seed, will play third-seeded Kentucky at approximately 8 p.m. on Thursday.
Roughly one month after Kramer Robertson took blame for all struggles on offense for the LSU baseball team, the senior shortstop is a key figure in the team's surge to the SEC Tournament championship game.
Missouri's pitching unraveled further after the break, as its three relievers combined to yield another five runs over the remaining four innings. In the first inning, Deichmann hit a two-run shot that just got over the glove of South Carolina's center fielder, and another solo shot to center field in the third inning.
He would record just two outs, giving up six runs on six hits, including three runs on two triples.
Peterson is 3-1 with a 3.98 ERA. on the season. Missouri's pitchers simply couldn't retire LSU's Cole Freeman, who dominated with a 4-4 performance at the plate that included a home run and four RBIs. "It gets us to the championship game, which we're excited and fired up about".
Missouri (36-22) had reeled off seven straight victories coming into the game, scoring 50 runs in the process. He finished a double short of hitting for the cycle. Lange increased his career strikeouts total to 374 to move past Ben McDonald (373 Ks, 1987-89) into second place on the all-time LSU strikeouts list. Row was South Carolina's top hitter at the SEC Tournament batting.368 (7-for-19) with five runs scored, a double, a homer and a pair of RBI. "He pitched his heart out, and I knew he would".
Greg Deichmann hit two home runs and Jared Poche threw six scoreless innings as LSU reached the championship game of the Southeastern Conference tournament with an 11-0 victory against SC at Hoover (Ala.) Metropolitan Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The recent surge for Robertson has helped the team post 10 runs or more in the last five games, starting with the SEC West-clinching win at Mississippi State before LSU closed the regular season with an SEC regular season clinching win the next day.
For a long stretch this season, Caleb Gilbert had to wonder when he would pitch a significant game again. "We try to do that every game, and it's something that's motivated our offense".
Senior Jared Poché (10-3) fired six scoreless innings for the win.
The Tigers (42-17) scored three runs in the first inning, two in the second and six in the third - and then coasted until the end of the seventh inning, when the game was called due to the "mercy rule".
Honestly, with the way the Wildcats were pitching much of the afternoon, one run seemed like enough. Robertson followed Watson with an RBI triple of his own before leftfielder Antoine Duplantis lifted a sacrifice fly.
