SEC Tournament: LSU 3, Alabama 0 -- Tide Gets Blanked in Birmingham

PodKATT of And The Valley Shook

LSU's pitchers shut down Alabama's bats to preserve a three-run lead and put the Tigers two games away from playing for the crown

LSU didn't wait around in its first appearance at the SEC baseball tournament -- pounding out three runs in the first inning and then sitting back while Alabama tried (and failed) to score over the next eight frames. The Tigers got three of their eight total hits, a walk and an Alabama error in their half of the first to put the game out of reach.

The rest was left up to the pitching staff and the defense. Cody Glenn pitched seven shutout innings while allowing just five hits and walking none. Nick Rumbelow and Chris Cotton each took an inning from there, and they also kept Alabama off the board.

The win puts LSU on a collision course with Arkansas in a battle of the West's best teams in the winners' bracket -- with the winner getting a bye on Friday. Alabama, meanwhile, will face off with the Rebels in an elimination game Thursday.
