COLUMBIA, Mo. – Sophomore left-hander Gage Jump fired a career-high 14 strikeouts Friday night, and LSU blasted four home runs as the Tigers posted a 12-1 win over Missouri at Taylor Stadium.

The game was halted after the seventh inning due to the Southeastern Conference 10-run rule.

LSU improved to 24-15 overall, 4-12 in the SEC, while Missouri dropped to 17-22 overall and 5-11 in conference play.

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

Jump (3-1) pitched the seven-inning complete game, limiting Missouri to one run on three hits with one walk and 14 strikeouts. He threw 98 pitches in the outing, 65 for strikes.

“I was a great performance by Gage and a great win for our team,” said LSU coach Jay Johnson. “Gage controlled the tempo of the game, and our hitters took great at-bats. We produced a lot of line drives with runners in scoring position, and we controlled the game from the first pitch to the last.”

Jump’s 14 strikeouts marked the most by an LSU pitcher since Ty Floyd recorded 17 strikeouts versus Florida last June in the College World Series.
