BATON ROUGE, LA (WVUE) -

LSU overcame a three-run deficit in the eighth inning to beat Alabama 7-5 on Sunday. The Crimson Tide took the weekend series 2-1 games.

With the bases loaded, pinch-hitter Brody Wofford ripped a single up-the-middle off of reliever Kyle Cameron to score two runs and cut the game to 4-3. Kramer Robertson then singled to right field to plate two runs and give the Tigers a 5-4 lead. LSU added two more runs on a single through the left side by left fielder Beau Jordan to push the lead to 7-4.

LSU's record goes 14-5 on the season, and 1-2 in SEC play. LSU returns to action Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Zephyr Field for the Wally Pontiff Jr. Classic against UL-Lafayette.
