LSU improved to 11-2 in the Wally Pontiff, Jr. Classic Tuesday night with a 8-5 victory over UL-Lafayette.

The Tigers jumped out to a 5-1 lead but the Ragin' Cajuns tied the game back up in the top of the fifth inning thanks to a Steven Sensley 3-run home run. LSU responded immediately with RBIs from Jake Fraley, Beau Jordan and Greg Deichman. The Tigers' bullpen held UL scoreless for the next four at-bats to ice the game preserving the 3-run victory.

It's a short turnaround for LSU as they head to Texas A&M Thursday for a series against the second-ranked team in the country. UL is also back in action Thursday for the first game of a series against Georgia State.
