BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - No. 15 LSU softball bounced back with a 7-5 win against in-state foe, Louisiana-Monroe, on Tuesday, March 30. Head coach Beth Torina earned her 400th win at LSU as the Tigers snapped a three-game losing streak.

After not leading all weekend against the Florida Gators, the Tigers (19-11, 4-5 SEC) exploded for five runs against the Warhawks (10-14, 4-1 SBC) in the bottom of the second inning.

Georgia Clark got things started in the second with a leadoff home run to left field to give LSU a 1-0 lead. It was Clark’s fourth home run of the season.

LSU then drew five walks around a fielder’s choice to extend its lead to 3-0. Amanda Doyle hit a two-run single up the middle to make it 5-0.

The Warhawks got on the scoreboard in the top of the fourth inning when Caley McGuff hit a two-run single to make it 5-2. ULM then added another run on an RBI foul out by Andie Edwards.

In the bottom of the fifth inning, the Tigers put up some insurance runs on a two-run single by Aliyah Andrews to make it 7-3.
