LSU softball run-rules Austin Peay to end third weekend of the season undefeated

The LSU softball team continues to look like it could be a special one.

After an 11-0 run-rule win in five innings over Austin Peay, the Tigers moved to 13-0 on the season as they finished their third week of the season by taking both legs of a Saturday doubleheader.

Emilee Casanova got the start and pitched all five innings as the Tigers shut out the Governors. LSU got one-run base hits in the first and second innings from Ali Newland and Taylor Pleasants, respectively. Newland broke things open in the third with a solo homer, and that was followed by a three-run double from Danieca Coffey and a three-run homer from Pleasants.

LSU added two more runs for good measure in the fourth inning with a two-run homer from Abigail Savoy.

The Tigers will be back in action on Friday when they begin the Purple & Gold Challenge with a doubleheader against Illinois and San Diego State.
