Strikeout by Ott in 9th gets LSU 8-7 win over Ark.

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 Southeastern Conference) 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.
