2012 Golden Spikes Award Watch: Kevin Gausman Picks Up 3rd Win, But Allows 4 Runs Against Dartmouth

The LSU Tigers improved to 8-2 on the season following Friday night's 8-4 victory over the Dartmouth Big Green at Alex Box Stadium. Kevin Gausman didn't have his best start of the season, but he was able to stay in the game long enough to see his offense give him a one-run lead by the time he left the game.

Gausman pitched 6.1 innings and struck out six batters, but he allowed four runs (three earned) on 10 hits. In the second inning, Gausman allowed a double and single to start the inning before Jeff Seller doubled in both of them. However, Seller was thrown out on third trying for the triple. In the fifth, Gausman allowed another leadoff double, which led David Turnbull to knock him in on the next at-bat. To start off the next inning, Ennis Coble singled in Dustin Selzer, who reached on a single and then advanced to second base on a wild pitch and to third on a throwing error.

In the bottom of the sixth, LSU's offense scored four runs to put LSU ahead, 7-4. Raph Rhymes hit a two-run single in the middle of the scoring.

Ryan Eades will be on the mound for the Tigers on Saturday.
