May, 13, 2012
BATON ROUGE -- No. 4 LSU (39-13, 17-10) lost its first SEC series since April 22 on Sunday, dropping a 10-inning decision to Vanderbilt (26-25, 13-14), 5-4.

Overview: Despite moving into the last slot of the rotation for an extra day off, LSU starter Ryan Eades continued his recent struggles from the mound against Vanderbilt. The Commodores jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second inning when Eades opened the frame by allowing a double and hitting a batter with no outs. Vandy took advantage with a sacrifice fly and a RBI single to open the lead.

Eades only managed 4.2 innings while allowing seven hits and three earned runs, but the Tigers' offense kept him out of position to take the loss. LSU rallied in the third inning to tie the score in a similar fashion, with Mason Katz knocking a RBI single followed by a sacrifice fly from Tyler Moore.
