BATON ROUGE, LA (WVUE) -

It wasn't pretty in Baton Rouge, but LSU still got the desired outcome, a win over Texas Southern. The Purple and Gold committed five errors in the contest, but sill blew out TSU 15-7.

"Strange things happen sometimes in these kind of games. There was so much talk about how long is he going to go with Jared Poche, and is he going to take him out after two innings, or save him for later," said LSU Head Baseball Coach Paul Mainieri. "We got away from focusing on playing good, solid baseball. It was my fault more than anybody's. I just don't think we looked like a very well-coached team out there today, and I'll take the blame for that. Somehow, some way, we found a way to win the game, and that's the important thing."

Zach Watson homered twice, including teaming up with Michael Papierski for back-to-back shots in the seventh inning. The two home runs by Watson, a freshman, gave him four RBI in the regional opener. Papierski also amassed four RBI in the 12-hit day for the entire LSU lineup.

The Tigers will next play Southeastern LA. at 7 p.m. Saturday night at Alex Box Stadium.
