USC v LSU in Game 1

USC opens the SEC tourney with LSU today at Regions Field in Hoover, Ala. in the first game of the 2008 SEC Baseball Tournament.

LSU is possibly the hottest team in the country, entering today's game with a 16-game winning streak, including 12 in a row against the SEC. They swept their final four conference series of the season. USC is 2-3 against LSU in the SEC Tournament. They last met here in Hoover in 2002.

In Game Blog----
-After going the first 3 full innings with good pitching and good D from both sides...the big bats are up in the top of the 4th for the gamecocks. Right now USC's Disher has hit a home run to put USC ahead 1-0 in the Top of the 4th. It is his 17th of the year and it went over the deepest part of the outfiled (dead center)......
-More great pitching and good D...both sides are struggling to hit.....Top of 6th with USC still winning 1-0!
-USC scores 2 runs off a shot by Harvey Lail to LF in the top of the 6th
-Still 3-0 with USC winning heading into the btm of the 7th
-Dyson has 6k today and has allowed only 1 hit thus far...USC survives a scare in the btm of the 7th as LSU has runners in scoring position. Now it is the btm of the 8th after SC couldn't due move in the top of the 8th except force LSU to change to its 3rd pitcher of the day. Still 3-0!
--BTM of 9th...SC winning 4-3 with 1 out
---TIED UP!!! SC surrenders a 4 to zero lead in the bottom of the 9th. LSU waits until the 9th to get some hits and a going into extra the 10th we go!
----Btm of 10th and LSU crushes a Home run. LSU wins 5-4. Another blown big lead for USC. LSU's winning streak goes on....the bullpen gave this one away!

The Gamecocks took a 4-0 lead into the bottom of the ninth, only to have the Tigers tie it then win in the 10th inning.

Simply unreal...Will Atwood sucks!
