Baton Rouge, La. - After putting up just one and five run efforts in LSU's first two games against Maryland, the Tigers had an offensive explosion Sunday to cruise to victory, 14-3.

After the Terrapins brought the game within three runs in the top of the seventh, the Tigers used the bottom of the frame to string together six hits, two hit batsmen, a walk, and an error to record eight runs and put the game on ice.

Coach Paul Mainieri got four innings out of starting pitcher Brett Bonvillain with just one earned run before going to his bullpen.  Nate Fury, Will LaMarche, Russell Reynolds, Hunter Newman, and Hunter Devall all got in an inning of work with Reynolds the only pitcher dinged for a run.

Offensively, Jacoby Jones, Christian Ibarra, and freshman phenom Alex Bregman all had multiple hits with Jones and Bregman each crossing the plate three times.  Jones and catcher Ty Ross each had a home run on the day.

Up next, the Tigers will host Lamar on Tuesday, first pitch at 6:00 p.m.
