BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU took advantage of early Air Force mistakes for nine early runs Friday night, coasting to a 10-2 win against the Falcons in the Tigers' season opener.

The Tigers (1-0) did most of their damage in the game’s first two frames and then rode a strong season-opening performance from Kevin Gausman to the win.

Bertelson’s Blunders: Despite taking a 1-0 lead in the top of the first, the Falcons (0-2) buried themselves under a forgettable inning for starter Ben Bertelson.
