BATON ROUGE, LA (WVUE) -

LSU scored seven in the seventh inning, storming back to claim a 10-7 victory over Fordham in Sunday's series finale. LSU was in danger of missing out on the sweep in game three of the series trailing 7-3, but the Tiger bats exploded ensuring a sweep in the seventh.

With the bases loaded and two outs in the seventh, Kramer Robertson cleared the bases with a double to tie the game at 7. Jake Fraley followed with a single to shortstop to score Robertson and give the Tigers an 8-7 lead. A triple to right-center field by Antoine Duplantis and double to right field by Beau Jordan made it a 10-7 game.

Starter Alex Lange got roughed up for six runs, in only 5.2 innings of work. Caleb Gilbert earned his first career win Saturday night after allowing just two hits in 2.1 innings.

LSU returns to action Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m. against Louisiana Tech.
