Two inning explosion lifts No. 4 LSU past Sacred Heart

LSU collected its 10th win of the year Wednesday night behind eight scoreless innings from its bullpen, as the fourth-ranked Tigers posted an 8-1 victory over Sacred Heart in Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field.

Relief pitchers Zac Person, Nate Fury, Kurt McCune and Henri Faucheux did not allow a run and only gave up two hits in eight innings of work.

The Tigers (10-2) travel to Natchitoches, La. for Thursday's rescheduled game against Northwestern State. First pitch is set for 3 p.m. CT The game can be heard in Baton Rouge on WTGE 100.7 FM,  and live audio and stats are available in the Geaux Zone at LSUsports.net/live.

Sacred Heart (2-2) plays this weekend in Hammond, La. in a three-game series versus Southeastern Louisiana.

LSU starting pitcher Brady Domangue (1-0) collected his first win as a Tiger on Wednesday night. Domangue worked three innings, and the Houma, La. native gave up a home run in the first inning, but limited the Pioneers to just three hits with one walk and two strikeouts.

"Brady Domangue is a tremendous young man and a very talented pitcher, and I thought he did an excellent job tonight," said LSU coach Paul Mainieri. "He looked very comfortable in a starting role, and he's going to continue to pitch a lot of significant innings for us. I was very encouraged by the outings of all of our pitchers tonight; I thought they all threw the ball well.

Starter Robbie Maguire (0-1) was charged the loss for Sacred Heart. In the 1.1 innings of work, Maguire gave up three hits and four runs.

LSU got off to another fast start. The Tigers scored four runs in the second inning. With the bases loaded, Kramer Robertson hit a single through the left side of the diamond to score Kade Scivicque. Chris Chinea followed with a double to right center to score Andrew Stevenson and Christian Ibarra. After a pitching change, Sean McMullen hit a sacrifice fly to right center to score Stevenson.

The Tigers added two more runs in the third inning.  After back-to-back singles by Alex Bregman and Conner Hale, Scivicque put down a sacrifice bunt to score Bregman. Stevenson then hit an RBI single through the left side to score Hale.

The biggest Pioneer threat came in the top of the fifth inning. With the bases loaded, Person struck out Dan Perez to end the inning.

In the bottom of the eighth, pinch hitters Jake Fraley and Danny Zardon reached based on a hit by pitch and a walk. Fraley and Zardon advanced to second and third on a passed ball. Chris Sciambra then hit an RBI single to right field to score Fraley.  With the bases loaded, Jarret DeHart induced a walk to add another run on the board.
