Notes on the Tigers
LSU went 4-2 in the Tiger Invitational with wins over Northwestern, George Washington (twice) and Penn State, falling to the South Alabama Jaguars and the Nittany Lions in game two of a doubleheader on Monday. The Tigers are 8-4 on the season heading into the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic, where they will play Long Beach State, Washington, Oregon, Cal State Fullerton and Stanford at the Big League Dreams Complex in Palm Springs, Calif. LSU outscored its opponents 43-19 over the course of the tournament. LSU had the highest batting average of all the teams in the event, hitting .370 with seven doubles, four triples and seven home runs. The Tigers were 21-for-22 in stolen bases on the weekend, with Jacee Blades and A.J. Andrews stealing six each. Blades, Baylee Corbello, Allison Falcon and Kellsi Kloss were named to the Tiger Invitational All-Tournament team. Falcon was named the tournament most valuable player after hitting .533 with eight hits, nine RBI and four runs scored. Falcon became the first person since 2004 to earn two triples in a game for LSU as she did so against Penn State, as she amassed a .563 on-base percentage and 1.200 slugging percentage including her grand slam against George Washington. Kloss and Blades had nine hits each over the tournament, tying for the most among all individuals in the tournament. Falcon and Kloss are each hitting over .400 for the season, with Falcon at .414 and Kloss at .407. Andrews is 11-for-11 in stolen base attempts on the season, the most for any player on the team currently. Corbello and Ashley Czechner each went 2-1 in the Tiger Invitational, as Corbello went the distance in all three games she started, while Czechner made three appearances and earned two complete game opportunities. Corbello had the only shutout for the group on the weekend, and has two on the year.
