FINAL: LSU 1, Auburn 0.

Beth Torina and the Tigers completed the sweep of Auburn in the first SEC series of the season. LSU pitcher Carley Hoover struck out eight batters today in her fifth shutout of the year. Not only did Hoover fan eight Auburn hitters, but she allowed only three hits.

“This weekend was a really good moment for our team,” said Torina.

Today’s win marked the 400th SEC win in LSU softball history. LSU is the second team all-time to record 400 wins in the conference.

Next, LSU will return to Tiger Park to take out Western Kentucky on Tuesday. First pitch is scheduled for 6 p.m. CT on SEC Network+.

No. 8 LSU now improves to 22-2 and 3-0 in conference play.
