App State shuts out LSU, 1-0



Appalachian State (3-2) put the only run on the board on a fourth-inning solo homer Saturday and defeated No. 7 LSU (5-1), 1-0, during the second game of the three game series.

The Tigers took the first game 4-0 last night, and will look to win the series tomorrow. Sophomore right-hander Kurt McCune takes the hill for LSU in a 11 a.m. start at Alex Box Stadium.

Appalachian State’s Ryan Arrowood (1-0) frustrated the LSU offense and retired 20 of 21 batters during one stretch of the game. The righty went seven innings, struck out 10 and allowed two hits.

Reliever Nathan Hyatt pitched a scoreless eighth and ninth inning for the save, his second of the season.

How big is this win? This big.

App State becomes first non-SEC to shut out LSU in eight years.

It’s also App State’s second win over a ranked foe exactly a year. Last February 25th, App State beat then No. 20 Miami, the first win over a ranked team since 1982.

Series is even. (LSU won game 1, 4-0). Game 3 Sunday at 11 a.m.

    Ryan Arrowood has a really big upside. More outings like today and he is going in the early rounds of the MLB draft. Great job guys!

    What a great win for Coach Pollard and the Diamond Apps. It has been a long road back from those terrible teams in the early 2000's and eight straight losing seasons. I urge everyone to join the ASU Dugout Club and help these young men succeed.

    Are the field goal posts still intact?

    Ya they are still in tact. I have watched these guys scrimmage multiple times and they play such great "D." The pitching is very good and will get deeper as the season goes along. If we can just get some help at the plate this season will be as good as we have ever had.

    Also a tidbit is that SOCON preseason player of the Year Victor Roache? broke his wrist last night and is likely out for the year.

    It's Charlie Cobbs fault we didn't win the first game.

    This is awesome! Pollard is a great coach and we are lucky to have him.

    Really looking forward to the App USC game in a few weeks, we got a crowd going down and will be tailgating all day.
