No. 1 Tennessee (51-7) defeated No. 4 LSU, 5-2, Friday in the Southeastern Conference Tournament in Hoover, Alabama.

Redmond Walsh pitched 2.0 innings against the Tigers, earning his seventh save of the season. He recorded one strikeout, while surrendering one hit and one walk.

The save is Walsh’s 23rd during his career at Tennessee. He is tied with Todd Helton for most saves during a Tennessee career.

“That was a well earned one and I think he really kind of gutted through the thing because their
lineup’s really good, and the guys were on what he was throwing more so than the average
cat,” Tennessee head coach Tony Vitello said of Walsh. “The park was kind of playing big, for both teams, so he utilized the park and threw strikes. The one walk, he was right around the plate. He just lost the guy but gutted it out, is the best way I can say it, and good for him to have that individual deal. That’s something he’ll be able to remember and throw around the clubhouse when he returns to campus. For now, I’m sure he wants to ball again tomorrow.”
