Gamecocks blown out against LSU in SEC tournament

HOOVER, AL -

In its fifth game in five days, South Carolina ran out of steam as second seeded LSU reached 10 runs for the fifth consecutive game on their way to an 11-0 win over the Gamecocks in seven innings in the semifinals of the 2017 SEC Tournament.  LSU is now 42-17 with the Gamecocks 35-25 on the year.

LSU belted out 14 hits with three homers on the way to the win and backed starter Jared Poche’, who allowed just two hits and two walks with a strikeout in six innings of work.  He is now 10-3 on the year. South Carolina starter Colby Lee took the loss and is 2-1 on the season.  He allowed four runs on four hits in 1.1 innings of work.

A pair of homers gave LSU a 3-0 lead in the first as Kramer Robertson led off the game with a solo homer and Greg Deichmann added a two-run shot that was just out of the grasp of TJ Hopkins at the wall in right-centerfield. The Tigers added a pair more in the second inning to take a 5-0 lead.

LSU would then put the game away with a six-spot in the third inning to take a commanding 11-0 lead. Michael Papierski tallied a RBI single, Zach Watson tripled to score two runs, Antoine Duplantis added a sacrifice fly and Deichmann hit his second homer of the game, a two-run shot to put the game out of reach for the Gamecocks.
