BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - In its last midweek home game of the season, LSU played solid baseball to defeat Alcorn State 6-1.

The Tigers' only mistake on the mound came from Alden Cartwright in the seventh inning. The sophomore gave up a solo home run to Scotty Peavey. It was just one of two Alcorn State hits on the night.

LSU slammed the door shut with three more runs in the eighth inning. With the win, the Tigers improved to 38-7 on the season. Freshman pitcher Doug Norman was credited with the win to improve to 3-1.
