KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee reliever AJ Causey pitched 4.2 scoreless innings Friday night as the fourth-ranked Volunteers posted a 6-3 win over No. 25 LSU in Lindsey Nelson Stadium.

Tennessee improved to 28-6 overall, 8-5 in the SEC, while the Tigers dropped to 22-13 overall and 3-10 in conference play.

The teams will meet in Game 2 of the series at 4:30 p.m. CT Saturday in a contest that will be broadcast on the LSU Sports Radio Network and televised on the SEC Network.

Causey (6-2) entered the game in the third inning in relief of starter Chris Stamos and fired 4.2 innings with no runs on five hits with two walks and seven strikeouts.

Kirby Connell picked up his second save of the season by working the final 1.2 innings, allowing two runs on two hits with no walks and three strikeouts.

“Their pitchers did a good job tonight of locating their fastballs, and they commanded their off-speed pitches in all the counts,” said LSU coach Jay Johnson. “They got ahead in the counts and put a lot of pressure on our hitters.”

NEVER since Skip Bertman took LSU from a useless baseball program to an EPIC baseball program has LSU faltered so drastically from one season to the next.This collapse is unprecedented. It’s the equivalent of what happened to LSU after the’19 football season. Johnson is finished

Yes it is. Worse actually because Johnson supposedly re-loaded & remember the transfer portal for football was non existent in 2020 so Orgeron couldn’t re load
