Per BATON ROUGE – Freshman Giovanni DiGiacomo entered to pinch hit with one out and the bases loaded in the bottom of the 12th inning and drew a walk to bring in center fielder Zach Watson as the No. 10 LSU baseball team defeated Kentucky in walk-off fashion to claim the series opener, 2-1, Saturday in Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field.

The 12th inning rally was started by Watson who singled through the left side to open the inning. With one out, third baseman Chris Reid slapped a single to left field and moved to second on a fielding error to put runners in scoring position. Kentucky elected to intentionally walk left fielder Daniel Cabrera to load the bases for DiGiacomo.

We were owed those walked in runs. We gave away more than our share earlier in the season.
