The Auburn baseball team allowed No. 3 LSU to jump out to an early lead for the second straight night and was unable to collect a key hit in the later innings as it fell 5-1 on Saturday night at Alex Box Stadium. The loss dropped Auburn to 15-8, 0-5 SEC while LSU improved to 21-2, 4-1 SEC.
"We kept the game close and that's what you have to do against good teams," Auburn Head Coach John Pawlowski said. "I thought we gave ourselves plenty of opportunities, we just weren't able to come up with something. I was hoping someone could find a hole and we could score some runs but it didn't happen. These guys keep battling hard and hopefully tomorrow we will be able to get something going."
Michael O'Neal, who had started the season out with four straight wins, took the loss to drop to 4-2. The southpaw was charged for five runs (four earned) on seven hits and a walk while striking out one to take a loss for the second straight week.
Ryan Eades improved to 5-0 in six starts for LSU, surrendering one run on seven hits and two walks while striking out four in 6 2/3 innings.
