Instant Analysis: LSU softball remains nation’s lone unbeaten team after top-3 win over Texas

The LSU softball team continued its streak of success in its toughest matchup of the season so far on Tuesday afternoon.

The No. 2 Tigers — the last remaining unbeaten team at the Division I level — welcomed No. 3 Texas to Tiger Park on Tuesday and walked away with a 7-4 win to remain undefeated on the season.

LSU jumped out to a commanding lead, scoring five runs in the first inning thanks to an RBI double from Raeleen Gutierrez followed by a bases-loaded hit by pitch and a three-RBI double from Kelley Lynch.

The Tigers added another run in the second with an RBI single from Ali Newland, but Texas wouldn’t go away. It added a trio of runs in the third and another in the fourth to cut the lead to 6-4.

However, LSU got some insurance at the bottom of the fourth with a Ciara Briggs sac-fly, and Sydney Berzon didn’t allow any more runs as she pitched a complete game and moved to 9-0 on the season after earning the win.

LSU will look to remain undefeated on the year as it welcomes Ole Miss to town for its home-opening SEC series this weekend.
