LSU's Alsup shuts down Ole Miss, 8-0

HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - Ben Alsup tossed a one-hitter to lead LSU back into the Southeastern Conference championship game with an 8-0 victory over Mississippi on Saturday.

Making just his second start of the season, Alsup (4-0) struck out seven and walked two in a game that was delayed 90 minutes and shortened to seven innings because of rain. He faced only two batters over the minimum thanks to a double play.

Blake Dean homered and drove in three runs for the Tigers (39-20), who move on to face the Alabama-Florida winner for the title Sunday. The defending national champions have won the past two SEC tournaments but squeaked into the field as the No. 8 seed after a late-season swoon.

The Tigers have won 12 of their last 13 SEC tournament games and are seeking their ninth title.

Ole Miss (38-22) went 2-2 in the tournament after ending the regular season on a five-game skid.
