GAINESVILLE, FL - Fourth-ranked LSU exploded for six runs in the eighth inning Sunday with three two-run homers, as the Tigers posted a 10-6 win over 11th-ranked Florida at McKethan Stadium.

LSU improved to 18-7 overall and 4-2 in the SEC.

LSU, which trailed 5-0 after five innings, overcame its largest deficit to win a road game since defeating Florida, 8-7, on April 7, 2012, after trailing 7-2 in that contest. The Tigers collected 12 hits in Sunday’s contest, including five doubles and three home runs.

LSU left-hander Nick Bush (1-0) earned his first career win after allowing one run in the seventh inning with no hits, two walks and one strikeout.

LSU erupted for six runs in the eighth to erase a 6-2 deficit. Rightfielder Greg Deichmann singled, and after centerfielder Zach Watson flied out, third baseman Josh Smith unloaded his second homer of the year to reduce the Gators’ advantage to 6-4.
