OXFORD, MS - Beer and home runs, fan favorites to most, but to LSU head coach Paul Manieri, they're annoying.
LSU beat Ole Miss 2-0, taking two-of-three from the No. 10 Rebels after Manieri scoffed at the Ole Miss tradition of throwing a beer after a home run.
One way to stop homers is with good pitchers, as LSU employed four of those in a shutout effort against Ole Miss.
LSU freshman Alden Cartwright threw four innings of shutout ball before the relief corp. shut the door.
Andrew Stevenson and Connor Hale did the damage at the plate for LSU.
Stevenson ripped an RBI single in the fourth to get the scoring started. Then, in the eighth, Connor Hale blasted a solo home run to give the Tigers a 2-0 lead.
LSU moves to 30-10 overall and returns home to face Tulane on Tuesday, April 22nd.
