Baton Rouge, La. - Kentucky's hopes of leaving Baton Rouge with some momentum were shot after just one inning of play Sunday.
After the Wildcats jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning, LSU responded with a five run frame and never looked back, winning 11-4.
For the series, the second ranked Tigers outscored seventh ranked Kentucky 31-6 and only trailed for half an inning. Top ranked North Carolina dropped its second game of the year Monday setting LSU up for a move up to the top of the polls.
Individually, freshman shortstop Alex Bregman extended his hitting streak to 20 games, hitting 5-for-11 on the weekend with 7 RBIs and 3 runs scored. His middle-of-the-infield mate JaCoby Jones had a slump breaking performance, hitting 8-for-13 including a monstrous home run Sunday.
LSU's 30-2 record is the best in program history. They will return to action Tuesday against Southern in the rescheduled Wally Pontiff Classic, still set for Zephyr Field in Metairie.
