HOOVER, Ala. — The South Carolina baseball team fell, 10-3, to LSU on day two of the 2023 SEC Tournament.

LSU scored a pair of runs in the second on a Brayden Jobert home run. The Gamecocks answered as Ethan Petry belted his 22nd home run of the season, a solo shot to the bullpen in left field. The Tigers took the lead for good with four runs in the fifth. The two teams traded a two-spot in the sixth as Petry and Talmadge LeCroy each drove in a run with a bases-loaded walk. The Tigers ended the scoring with a pair in the seventh.

Petry drove in a pair in the game and now has 72 RBI on the season. The loss went to Eli Jones, who allowed four runs and five hits with three strikeouts and a walk in four-plus innings.

Carolina will face Texas A&M Thursday morning in an elimination game.
