LSU pounded out a season-high 20 hits to demolish Missouri 15-2 on Sunday. LSU swept Missouri in a three-game weekend series.

Jordan Romero led off the seventh with a home run to left center, Greg Deichmann hit a solo blast to right field and Bryce Jordan left the park for the second time in the series with a no-doubter over the scoreboard.

John Valek III (6-1) started on the mound for LSU, striking out five and walking none over six innings.

LSU returns to Alex Box Stadium Wednesday for a matchup with Southeastern Louisiana at 6:30 p.m.
