BATON ROUGE -- LSU finished off a weekend sweep of Alabama on Sunday afternoon with a 5-1 win.

The Tigers (30-7, 11-4) have now won 13 of their last 14 games and hold a three-game lead in the SEC West. Three straight losses drop Alabama (13-23, 4-11) deeper into the conference cellar.

Overview: As was the case all weekend, Alabama had some success early, but couldn't sustain it against the LSU pitching staff. LSU starter Aaron Nola (5-1) surrendered a solo home run to Alabama shortstop Jared Reaves in the game's third at-bat. But Nola recovered to allow just two more hits over five innings of work. He struck out five to go along with his three total hits and one run.
