TUSCALOOSA (AP) -- Mason Katz had three hits and drove in four
runs to lead LSU over Alabama 10-6 on Friday in the Crimson Tides
first game since deadly tornadoes hit Tuscaloosa and other parts of
the state.

Kurt McCune (6-3) held Alabama to two runs to pick up the win.
Only one Alabama player grounded out against McCune, who struck out five batters. That was David Kindred, who grounded into a double
play in the fourth inning. Otherwise, McCune recorded 14 outs on
fly balls.

The Tigers (30-17, 8-14) scored at least a run in each of the
first five innings, and jumped out to a 10-1 lead.

Leadoff hitter Trey Watkins also had three hits for the Tigers.

Senior right-hander Nathan Kilcrease (5-4) suffered his first
home loss this season. He lasted only 1 2-3 innings and allowed
four runs on five hits.

Alabama (28-20, 10-12) had 10 hits compared with LSU's 14.

The Tide got a solo home run from shortstop Jared Reaves, who
added an RBI single in the eighth inning.

It was the opener of a three-game series at Sewell-Thomas
Stadium.
