Quick Glance: LSU Dominates Ole Miss Again, Strengthens NCAA Tournament Hopes
  • In the ninth inning against Ole Miss at Alex Box Stadium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, LSU pitcher Griffin Herring (35) was on the mound. Following a weather delay in the sixth inning, LSU secures a 5-1 victory.

  • The pitching staff has played a significant role in LSU clawing back into the NCAA tournament discussion.

  • A win on Friday would mean that LSU (35-20, 12-17 SEC) is just one victory away from reaching 13 wins in SEC play, putting them in a much stronger position for an at-large bid for the NCAA tournament.

  • With that final out, LSU heads into Saturday's series finale against the Rebels (27-27, 11-18) with a 1.50 ERA.
