DELAND, Fla. -- Centerfielder Shane Jordan collected four hits and three RBI Saturday to lead Stetson’s 20-hit attack as the Hatters defeated LSU, 14-1, at Melching Field.

Stetson (5-1), which posted an 8-1 win over LSU on Friday night, won its fourth straight game. LSU fell to 3-2 with Saturday’s loss.

Game 3 of the series will start at 1 p.m. EST (Noon CST) Sunday. Junior right-hander Jared Bradford (0-0) is scheduled to start the contest for LSU, while Stetson is expected to counter with senior left-hander Chris Ingoglia (1-0).

Sunday’s game can be heard on the affiliates of the LSU Sports Radio Network (WDGL 98.1 in Baton Rouge). The audio broadcast and live streaming video are available in the Geaux Zone at

Jordan singled four times and drove in three runs Saturday to spark the Hatters’ offensive outburst. Stetson second baseman Casey Frawley had three hits - including a triple - and two RBI while right fielder Adam Tindle collected three RBI with three hits.

Stetson starter Jake Hitchcock (1-0) worked six innings for the victory, limiting the Tigers to one unearned run on three hits with no walks and three strikeouts.

“Certainly, we have a long way to go in becoming the team we want to be,” said LSU coach Paul Mainieri. “We’ll continue to work hard and compete hard, and we will get better. This is a tough phase to go through, and this is not an easy process, but we have to put today’s game behind us and continue to move forward.”

LSU starter Louis Coleman (1-1) was charged with the loss, allowing eight runs seven earned on nine hits in 2.1 innings with no walks and two strikeouts.

The Tigers’ only run came in the third inning and reduced an early Stetson lead to 4-1. Shortstop Michael Hollander reached on an error and later scored on left fielder Blake Dean’s two-out double. Dean, a freshman from Crestview, Fla., has a team-high seven RBI.
