In March, former Byrd star Richard Carthon singled home the winning run against LSU in extra innings to give Tulane a 3-2 win over the Tigers.  Tuesday night, the Fightin' Tigers wanted revenge while the Green Wave wanted a season sweep.

On Military Appreciation Night at Alex Box Stadium, sixth-ranked LSU defeated Tulane, 6-0, for the Tigers’ 13th shutout of the year at Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field.

The Tigers improved to 31-10-1 overall while the loss dropped Tulane to 15-23 on the year.

Seven LSU pitchers combined to record the shutout Tuesday night, as the Tigers limited the Green Wave to six hits. The Tigers added to their school record for single-season shutouts that was originally established on April 9 when LSU blanked Lamar for its 11th shutout.

LSU pounded out 14 hits for the game and scored six runs on 12 hits against Tulane starting pitcher Tyler Mapes, normally a member of the Wave’s weekend rotation.

“I feel confident in saying that this was our best offensive game of the season,” said LSU coach Paul Mainieri. “Mapes is an outstanding pitcher who could pitch in an SEC starting rotation. I thought our hitters really dug in against him and delivered some tremendous at-bats.”

LSU is now 11-2 in the month of April after ending March on a four-game losing streak.

Junior left-hander Zac Person (2-1), the second of seven LSU pitchers, earned the win after only allowing one hit in an inning of work. Person replaced LSU starting pitcher Kyle Bouman, who worked 4.1 innings and allowed just three hits.

LSU plays host to Tennessee this weekend beginning Friday at 7 p.m. First pitch is set for 6:30 p.m. on Saturday in a game that will be televised by CST. The Tigers and Volunteers square off in the Game 3 of the series at 12 p.m. on Sunday. All three games can be heard on the LSU Sports Radio Network (1130 the Tiger/KWKH-AM in Shreveport.)
