BATON ROUGE -- LSU secured another SEC series win Saturday night with a 7-1 victory against Alabama.

Here's some quick reaction from the game, which went from a two-run thriller to a blowout during the course of a crucial eighth inning.

Overview: LSU starter Ryan Eades (5-1) turned in a sterling performance in subduing the Crimson Tide lineup. Eades didn't overpower Alabama's offense, but he completely befuddled the Tide (13-22, 4-10) while limiting their hitters to just two hits. He notched just five strikeouts, but he managed to retire the side in order in five of the eight innings he appeared in. He finished the night with 7.1 innings pitched, one run and just two hits allowed along with his five strikeouts.
