BATON ROUGE, La. -- In a game that was twice delayed by rain and lightning, LSU caught lightning in a bottle and completed a historic evening..
After enduring a 65-minute rain delay and an in-game lightning delay, the Tigers polished off a 27-0 victory against Northwestern State with a five-pitcher, six-inning no-hitter. The margin of victory was the largest in the program's history dating to 1893.
The game was called with one out in the bottom of the sixth inning when lightning threatened to halt the game once again. During the 65-minuter pregame delay, a run-rule after seven innings was put into effect.
LSU catcher/third baseman Tyler Moore and shortstop Alex Bregman each hit grand slams - Bregman also had a three-run homer in the sixth - and each finished with eight RBI.
The five Tigers pitchers who combined for the six-inning no-hitter were starter Jared Poche' (1-0), Kyle Bouman, Nate Fury, Kurt McCune and Joe Broussard. It was the largest margin of victory in LSU history.
