Tigers stopped only by rain- lead 7-0

The LSU baseball team's season opener against North Florida Friday night was suspended in the bottom of the fourth inning due to heavy rains in the Baton Rouge area.

The Tigers held a 7-0 lead with runners on first and third when the game was stopped at 7:46 p.m.

The game will resume at noon on Saturday, followed by another nine-inning contest 30 minutes after the completion of Game 1.

Fans are reminded to bring their Game 1 ticket stubs to be admitted for the suspended game. The stands will be cleared following the completion of Game 1, and fans will need a Game 2 ticket to be admitted for the second game.

The LSU Sports Radio Network will broadcast the games in Baton Rouge only on WTGE (107.3 FM). Live video, audio and stats are also available to members of the Geaux Zone powered by USAgencies at www.LSUsports.net.

LSU broke open a scoreless tie with a seven-run fourth. Right fielder Quinn Stewart started the barrage with a RBI single, scoring third baseman Will Harris who reached on a double to start the frame.

Two defensive miscues by the Ospreys, including a throwing error by pitcher Jacob Dixon, brought home shortstop Michael Hollander.

With the Tigers leading 4-0, center fielder Jarred Bogany drove in a run on his third single of the game followed by a bases-clearing two-run double from designated hitter J.T. Wise.

Dixon was lifted just before the rains came after surrendering six runs on 11 hits in 3.1 innings of work.

Meanwhile, LSU starter Clay Dirks cruised through the first four innings, limiting UNF to two hits on 60 pitches. The senior racked up six strikeouts, just two shy of his career-high.
