Hoover, Ala. - After suffering a loss on Wednesday, LSU had to turn to its ace pitcher, Kevin Gausman, to deliver a victory against Ole Miss and keep the Tigers alive in the double-elimination SEC tournament.

The ace delivered.  Gausman threw seven innings, allowing only two runs and striking out seven in a display of dominance.  The offense contributed 17 hits and 11 runs to produce a convincing 11-2 victory over the Rebels.

LSU improved to 43-15 and advanced to the quarterfinal round at 3 p.m. Friday where they will have a rematch against Mississippi State.

"I really like the way we approached the ball game today after yesterday's loss (to Mississippi State)," said LSU coach Paul Mainieri. "There was no sulking and no one was hanging their head. We came to the park with a lot of energy and a determination to extend our stay here. We love playing in Hoover and we'd like to stay here for as long as possible."
