Final: LSU 1, Texas 8.

They were going to lose a game eventually, right?

Paul Mainieri and the No. 1 ranked Tigers dropped their first game of the season to No. 16 Texas tonight in Austin. LSU will return to action Saturday at 3:30 p.m. CT. LSU had just four hits the entire game and struck out eight times.

Texas right-handed pitcher Bryce Elder threw 6.2 masterful innings, limiting LSU to just one run. Texas improves to 8-3 overall with the win tonight at YFCU Disch-Falk Field. LSU starter Zack Hess threw four innings, giving up three runs on six hits, walking four and striking out six.

Get ready: Tomorrow will be a jam packed day for Tiger Athletics.
