BATON ROUGE, LA - Freshman right-hander Eric Walker fired a career-high seven innings and senior shortstop Kramer Robertson blasted a two-run home run, but it was not enough as Texas A&M left fielder Walker Pennington hit a three-run blast in the ninth inning to push the Aggies to a 4-3 series win against No. 6 LSU Saturday afternoon at Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field.

With the loss, LSU falls to 19-10 on the season and 5-4 in Southeastern Conference play.

Caleb Gilbert suffered the loss and fell to 1-1 on the season. The sophomore right-hander allowed four runs on three hits, walked a batter and struck out two in the ninth inning.

Walker started the game for the Tigers and shutout the Aggies, allowing only three hits, walking one and striking out seven.

LSU jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the fourth after Robertson drilled his second home run of the weekend to left-centerfield, driving in left fielder Antoine Duplantis who reached on a single to lead off the inning.
