BATON ROUGE, LA - LSU junior right-hander Alex Lange struck out 12 Texas A&M hitters Thursday night, but the Aggies recorded a 4-0 win over the sixth-ranked Tigers in Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field.
The Tigers fell to 18-9 and 4-3 in the SEC with the loss.
Lange (3-3) was charged with the loss despite allowing just two runs on nine hits. Thursday’s game marked the fourth time Lange recorded at least 12 strikeouts in his career, and he fell just one shy of tying his all-time high of 13 Ks.
The game remained scoreless until the top of the fifth, when Texas A&M centerfielder Nick Choruby lifted a two-run home run just over wall in right field.
