. - LSU found a way to score three runs in the first three innings off Missouri ace Bryce Montes De Oca and Zach Hess followed by a couple of Tigers relievers made it stand up with a 4-2 victory in the SEC opener Friday night at Alex Box Stadium. De Oca only allowed two hits in six innings, but 7 walks gave LSU all the baserunners it would need. Five of those bases on balls came in the bottom the first when LSU (13-6, 1-0) took a 2-0 lead. Zach Watson, Brandt Broussard and Antoine Duplantis got free passes to load the bases with nobody out, and Austin Bain produced the first run with an RBI grounder. After another walk to Hunter Feduccia, Beau Jordan struck out looking, but Chris Reid drew a two-out bases-loaded RBI walk to make it 2-0 LSU. Jordan homered in his next at-bat for a 3-0 LSU lead in the bottom of the 3rd.
