South Carolina evens series with LSU

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Sensational freshman shortstop Alex Bregman finally showed he's human, making two errors that led to three South Carolina runs, as No.2 LSU fell to the Gamecocks 4-2 Saturday night to even their SEC series in game two. Tanner English, the ninth batter in the Gamecocks' lineup, had a go-ahead triple in the top of the ninth after Bregman's second error, and scored himself on a balk by LSU reliever Chris Cotton. That led to the ejection of Tigers coach Paul Mainieri for arguing. Bregman's error in the first inning led to a pair of South Carolina runs off Ryan Eades, who worked seven innings without allowing an earned run. Raph Rhymes scored two runs after two leadoff doubles in the second and sixth innings to tie the score 2-2, but LSU never scored again. The Tiger got the tying runs aboard in the ninth against Gamecock's relief ace Tyler Webb, but he got out of the jam by striking out Sean McMullen and Mark Laird and retiring Bregman on a long fly ball to earn his 13th save of the season.
