BATON ROUGE, La. --LSU scored runs in every inning except the sixth on the way to a 14-4 victory over Georgia in a Southeastern Conference game Saturday at Alex Box Stadium.
LSU (23-13) collected 16 hits in the game, marking the 10th straight game in which LSU has reached double figures in hits.
Four of those hits came courtesy of freshman second baseman J.C. Holt.
Dustin Hahn's one-out double in the second and a walk to David Raymer set up Chris Phillips for an RBI single to score Hahn for a 2-0 LSU lead. Holt followed Phillips with another base hit to plate Raymer for a 3-0 edge.
The runs would be more than enough for LSU pitcher Brian Wilson, who gave up no earned runs in seven innings. Wilson walked just one and threw 82 pitches in improving to 5-2 on the year.
Georgia (18-13) scored in the seventh as Clay Harris booted Ned Yost's grounder that would have ended the inning, scoring Justin Holmes. The Bulldogs added another unearned run in the eighth when Chaz Lytle scored after Hill made an errant throw, and a two-run single by Marshall Szabo closed scoring.
Brandon Moorhead, who may have pulled a muscle when he slipped in the second inning, was one of five Georgia pitchers, lasting two innings and giving up four runs on five hits to fall to 3-1.
