BATON ROUGE, La. - The Washington baseball team rallied in the late innings to close the gap, but couldn't overcome No. 8 LSU in a 7-5 loss Sunday at Alex Box Stadium. It was the Tigers' 10th straight win.

Washington (4-11) took its first lead of the weekend with a two-run second inning. Singles from Michael Camporeale and Will Sparks got things started. After a bunt moved them up, Camporeale scored on a wile pitch and Sparks came home on an Erik Forgione groundout.

But LSU (14-1) used the longball to move in front in the bottom of the second. After a walk, first baseman Mason Katz hit his third homer of the series to left, tying the score. Two outs later, catcher Ty Ross homered down the left-field line, moving the Tigers in front, 3-2.

In the third, LSU's Chris Sciambra led off with a double and eventually scored on an Alex Bregman single to increase the Tiger lead to 4-2.

LSU added two more in the fifth as Mark Laird singled and scored on a Bregman triple. Bregman then crossed when the throw to third got out of play. In the sixth, Sciambra double and scored on a Laird single to make it 7-2.

Washington got two runs back in the seventh. After Forgione walked to begin the inning, Jayce Ray belted a long triple off the center field fence. Ray came into score on a wild pitch, cutting the LSU lead to 7-4.

In the eighth, the UW drew within two runs. After singles from Will Sparks and Duncan Hendrickson put runners at the corners, Brian Wolfe grounded out, bringing in Sparks to make it 7-5.

Washington starter Tyler Davis (0-2) took the loss, allowing four runs on five hits in two innings. LSU's Cody Glenn improved to 3-0 with the win, giving up two runs on seven hits over five and two-thirds. Chris Cotton notched his fifth save, pitching a scoreless ninth.

Sparks, Meggs and Camporeale each had two hits for Washington while Laird led LSU with four.

Washington returns to Seattle for a non-conference game Tuesday vs. Portland and then heads to UCLA next weekend to open Pac-12 Conference play.
