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.

    FOOTBALL This 7-9 business won't work again on Airline Drive. You finish with that mark four years in a row, and Drew Brees will be gone after the 2017 season. Vegas has the Saints over/under on wins at 8, so the bettors think they'll stay close to that 7-9 record. Will they finish at .500, or under again as they did in 2014-16, I can't give you a definitive answer on that. No Dannell Ellerbe this season, and the offensive line missing Terron Armstead and Max Unger for cam...

    David Onyemata In 2016, the Saints drafted two defensive tackles: Sheldon Rankins and David Onyemata. The injury to Nick Fairley has put that haul into complete focus this season. The expectations for Rankins are high but the development of Onyemata could be almost as important.  He has the athleticism and versatility to be an effective defensive lineman. The question is has he developed enough to step into a more prominent role? The Saints sure hope so.  Hau’Oli Ki...more>>
