Lange fires complete game shutout to lead LSU in win over Auburn

  Right-hander Alex Lange fired a complete game shutout on Thursday night as LSU downed Auburn.

BATON ROUGE, La. – Right-hander Alex Lange fired a complete game shutout on Thursday night, allowing just five hits with nine strikeouts as LSU (33-17) edged Auburn (32-19) by a final score of 4-0 at Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field. 

With the win, Lange (6-5) collected the second shutout of his career with the Tigers. Lange also became the first LSU pitcher to throw back-to-back complete games since Aaron Nola tossed four in a row in 2013.

Left-handed pitcher Andrew Mitchell (5-3) was charged with the loss after giving up four runs on three hits in 2.1 innings.

In the top of the first inning, rightfielder Greg Deichmann singled up the middle to drive in shortstop Kramer Robertson as LSU grabbed an early 1-0 lead.

With the bases loaded, designated hitter Beau Jordan drew a walk to bring home leftfielder Antoine Duplantis. Third baseman Josh Smith hit a sacrifice fly to left on the following play, scoring Deichmann to give the Tigers a 3-0 advantage.

In the bottom of the second inning, Duplantis delivered a two-out RBI double to score Robertson, extending LSU's lead to 4-0.

The Tigers return to action tomorrow night with first pitch slated for 7 p.m. CT. The game will be carried by affiliates of the LSU Sports Radio Network, and the broadcast can also be heard at www.LSUsports.net/live. The game may be viewed on SEC Network+, accessible at WatchESPN.com and the WatchESPN app.
