BATON ROUGE, LA (WVUE) -

After being shocked by Ball State in a Friday night loss, LSU recovered nicely to take the series with a 10-6 win on Sunday.

Michael Papierski had his first three-hit game of his career and drove in three runs. With two outs and the bases loaded in the fourth, Papierski singled to right field, which scored Kramer Robertson from third as the Tigers took the 8-1 lead over Ball State.

On the mound John Valek III pitched five innings, giving up only one run. Valek III earned his fourth win in four starts this season for LSU.

The Tigers return to action Wednesday night against UNO at 6:30 p.m.
