Yikes! Don't they have a mercy rule in College Baseball?
The LSU Tigers annihilated Northwestern State 27-0 in a game called in the bottom of the 6th inning due to lightning.
The game featured 2 Grand Slams HR's and 5 Tiger pitchers giving up 0 hits to the Demons.
According to the Baton Rouge Advocate, the win was the largest in LSU Baseball history--and that the program dates back to 1893.
And in case you are wondering, Northwestern State isn't a terrible team, they came into the game with a 30-21 record on the season.
Thankfully a thunderstorm rolled in and put an end to the game which started an hour late due to the weather and was delayed in the 3rd inning. The final straw was lightning in the area just before 10:30 p.m central time.
The win put the tigers at 37-14 on the season and sets them up for the SEC baseball tourney which begins next week.
