Box Score

BATON ROUGE, La. - Junior Erinn Jayjohn and senior Kendall Bruning combined to limit the No. 23 ranked LSU Tigers to just two runs on only three hits and the Ole Miss bats pounded out eight hits, but could only push across one run as the Rebels fell 2-1 to the Tigers on Saturday night at Tiger Park.

Ole Miss outhit LSU 8-3 and threatened in several innings, including the top of the first after shortstop Allison Brown drew a two-out walk and moved to second on first baseman Londen Ladner's single down the left field line, but Bruning struck out swinging to end the inning.

LSU threatened in its half of the first with runners on second and third and two out, but Rebel center fielder Dallas Hardin made a diving catch on Tiger second baseman Allison Falcon's short pop up to strand both runners.

The Tigers jumped on the scoreboard in the bottom of the third after leadoff hitter A.J. Andrews tripled to right center to start the frame and later scored on left fielder Ashley Langoni's sac fly to right.

Ladner earned a four-pitch walk to start the top of the fourth and was pinch ran for by Jayla Hubbard, who advanced to second on Bruning's single to right. With two on and nobody out, a passed ball by Tiger catcher Lauren Houston moved both runners into scoring position and catcher Marina Parra laced a single into right that scored Hubbard and tied the game at one.

Falcon singled to right to lead off the Tiger half of the fourth and was pinch ran for by Alex Boulet, who with one down stole second and third to move into scoring position.  After third baseman Ashley Wray walked to put runners on the corners, first baseman Ashleigh Kuhn grounded into an RBI fielder's choice to shortstop that scored Boulet and gave LSU the lead at 2-1.

Jayjohn (3-12) started and suffered the hard-luck loss after allowing just two runs on only two hits in six innings of work. Bruning pitched the final two innings and allowed only one hit. Jayjohn also picked up two hits at the plate, and Brittany Broome added two singles in four at-bats.

Ole Miss will conclude its three-game series at No. 23 LSU tomorrow with first pitch set for 1 p.m.
