COLLEGE STATION, TX (WAFB) -

After a 12-hour and 57-minute delay, LSU and Texas A&M finally finished game two of their weekend series with the Tigers (44-7, 20-6) holding on to win 7-4.

It was an early 9:30 a.m. start, but that did not stop the Aggies from swinging the bats. The game started off in the 7th with Daniel Mengden blasting a solo homer off Joey Bourgeois to cut LSU's lead to 7-3. 

The Tigers had a chance to tack on a run in the 8th when Mason Katz slammed a single to left, but Sean McMullen was thrown out at home.

The Aggies inched one run closer when Hunter Melton belted a single to left, scoring Cole Lankford to make it a 7-4 game. Bourgeois was taken out of the game after that hit and replaced by Nick Rumbelow. Rumbelow came in and forced Mengden to hit into a 5-4-3 inning ending double play.

Chris Cotton came into the 9th and retired the Texas A&M side for his 11th save of the season.

Aaron Nola (10-0) picked up the win after working 6 innings, giving up two earned runs on six hits.
