BATON ROUGE, La. – LSU wouldn't die and the game wouldn't end.
So they'll finish it Saturday.
The Tigers hit tying home runs in three straight innings where they were facing defeat and fought their way to a 4-4 tie with Stony Brook through 11 innings in the first game of their super regional Friday at Alex Box Stadium. Heavy rain fell before the start of the 12th inning, so the game will be resumed Saturday morning at 10:05 a.m. CDT. Game two, originally set for 11 a.m., will start 50 minutes after the completion of the first game.
JaCoby Jones, Tyler Moore and Mason Katz all hit game-tying solo home runs in the bottom of the ninth, 10th and 11th innings, respectively, to tie the game after Stony Brook built one-run leads in the top of each inning. The rain delay started at 3:08 p.m. and the game was called 2 1/2 hours later.
