Louisiana State had the right stuff in a 5-1 baseball victory over Hawaii before 10,866 today at Alex Box Stadium in Baton Rouge, La.
All seven of the 13th-ranked Tigers’ hits went to the right side, including Zach Watson’s leadoff homer in the first inning and Hunter Feduccia’s two-run blast in a three-run third.
UH starting pitcher Dominic DeMiero struggled, relinquishing six hits, two walks and five earned runs in three innings. Cade Smith and Jeremy Yelland allowed one LSU base-runner the rest of the way.
The teams split the first two games of this three-game series. Sunday’s final game begins at 9 a.m. (Hawaii time).
