BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Left-hander Cody Glenn's seven
shutout innings and a two-run sixth inning guided No. 4 LSU (10-1) to a 2-0
victory over Nicholls State (7-5) at Alex Box Stadium on Sunday.
LSU capped off a successful
weekend after a pair of victories over Brown. The Tigers defeated the Bears by
scores of 4-3 and 7-1 on Friday and Saturday, respectively.
Over the course of the weekend,
Glenn (2-0) and starters Aaron Nola and Ryan Eades combined to not allow an
earned run. Inm fact, LSU starting pitchers have not allowed an earned run in
27.2 consecutive innings of work. The Tigers starters have not allowed an
earned run since February 24, when Eades allowed a run in the sixth inning
against Southeastern Louisiana.
Glenn has not allowed an earned run in all three of his starts and matched
his career high with seven innings pitched after accomplishing the same feat
Tuesday in the victory over ULL. The southpaw struck out five Sunday and
allowed three hits and one walk.
"Cody Glenn was magnificent today and made great pitches in clutch
situations," said LSU coach Paul Mainieri. "He had to pitch with a lot of
pressure since the game was scoreless for so long, and he demonstrated a great
ability to handle it. We finally strung together some hits in the sixth to give
Cody some runs, and our bullpen was excellent again today to help us secure the
LSU relievers Joey Bourgeois and Chris Cotton combined to strike out five
in the eighth and ninth inning, respectively. Cotton picked up his third save
of the season after striking out the side in the final frame.
Nicholls' starter Taylor Byrd (2-1) picked up the loss in a solid effort.
Byrd did not allow an LSU hit until the fifth inning and LSU finally
touched him for two runs in the sixth.
Third baseman Christian Ibarra
chopped a one-out single between third and short and moved to third on right
fielder Sean McMullen's bloop single to center. Centerfielder Mark Laird scored
Ibarra with a single to right and advanced McMullen a base.
Shortstop Alex Bregman produced
the game's second run off of a hard hit single up the middle, which scored
McMullen from second.
LSU's offense combined for seven
hits, five of them off of Bryd. Seniors
Raph Rhymes and Mason Katz increased their hit streaks to nine games apiece.
The Colonels mounted their best
threat in the top of the first inning. Glenn stranded a runner on third after a
pair of strikeouts and proceeded to retire nine consecutive batters until
Ibarra's error in the top of the fourth.
Following Ibarra's error, Glenn
continued his dominance by retiring the next seven batters. After allowing the
first batter of the game to reach base with a single, Glenn did not give up
another hit until the first batter of the sixth inning.
Laird robbed Nicholls catcher
Cody Dufrene of an extra-base hit in the top of the third inning with a diving
catch just in front of the warning track in center.
