Southern Miss falls to LSU 8-3 in Wally Pontiff Classic

METAIRIE, LA (WDAM) -

After jumping out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning, Louisiana State University regained control with a four-run bottom half of the inning. The Tigers (27-7) used eight pitchers and allowed the Golden Eagles (19-13) on the board only one more time the rest of the way to hand Southern Miss a 8-3 loss.

The loss is the sixth straight in the series against LSU. Meanwhile, the first two Southern Miss pitchers gave up a combined five walks, four earned runs, hit a batter, and didn't give up a single hit. Taylor Nunez managed only a third of an inning of action, while Cody Livingston faced two batters and walked both before being pulled.

James McMahon settled things down enough to keep the Black and Gold to within striking distance, but still allowed two hits and four runs, three earned, to allow the Tigers to stretch their lead. Nunez took the loss and Aaron Nola earned the win, pitching the first inning.

Southern Miss returns to Pete Taylor Park and to Conference USA play on Friday when they face the University of Central Florida to begin a weekend series. First pitch on Friday is set for 6 pm.
