Baton Rouge, LA (AP) - LSU closer Matty Ott struck out Arkansas' Bo Bigham to get the third out of the ninth inning and an 8-7 win Saturday.
Arkansas (13-4, 1-1 SEC) led by as many as four runs but LSU (15-3, 1-1 SEC) used a big seventh inning to get the win. With Arkansas leading 5-1, LSU put together a seven-run rally to go ahead in the seventh. The Tigers batted around the order and were aided by four walks, a hit batter and a wild pitch from Arkansas.
Collin Kuhn had a career-high four RBIs for the Razorbacks, including a two-run homer in the eighth inning that pulled Arkansas to within a run of the Tigers.
The series finale is Sunday at 1pm in Baton Rouge.
