KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – LSU pitchers Luke Holman and Griffin Herring limited fourth-ranked Tennessee to just three runs on five hits Saturday, but the Volunteers posted a 3-1 win over the Tigers in Lindsey Nelson Stadium.

Tennessee improved to 29-6 overall, 9-5 in the SEC, while LSU dropped to 22-14 overall and 3-11 in conference play.

The teams conclude the series at 2 p.m. CT Sunday in a game that will be broadcast on the LSU Sports Radio Network and televised on the SEC Network.

Holman (6-2) was charged with the loss despite allowing just two runs on two hits in 5.2 innings with three walks and four strikeouts. He fired a no-hitter through the first 5.1 innings of his outing.

“Everything was working for Luke tonight,” said LSU coach Jay Johnson. “He’s the best player on our team, and he pitched like it again tonight. He did a great job; he did everything he could to help us win the game.”

Hard to say anyone saw this coming ( except Moo State, Arky, Tenn etc). Will struggle to win any remaining series. Play for next year!

Fortunately, the administration doesn't pay attention to these sites. This is a down year. Johnson's record at Arizona and his team last year indicate this is an exception to the rule, not a predictor of future failure. Have a bit of patience.

Maybe it's time to save Holman for Sundays so we might win a game now and then.

Th is what happens when your clutch players like Dugas & Beloso leave. Not to mention Jobert. Graduation hurts...not much leadership on this team either.
