In his career collegiate start, LSU freshman left-hander Jared Poche' pitched six innings of scoreless baseball Sundy in the Tigers' 6-0 win over Grambling at Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field.

LSU (3-0) faces Southeastern Louisiana (2-1) on Wednesday in Hammond, La. at Pat Kenelly Diamond at Alumni Field. First pitch is at 6 p.m. on Cox Sports Television and the LSU Sports Radio Network.

Grambling fell to 0-3 with Sunday's loss.

Poche', a native of Lutcher, La., struck out three and only allowed four hits with no walks in Sunday's victory.

"Jared is going to be a very good pitcher for us, and we save evidence of that today," said LSU coach Paul Mainieri. "He is unusually poised for a freshman, and I could tell he was really amped up for this start today with a fastball topping out at over 90 miles per hour.

Also in his collegiate start, second baseman Kramer Robertson provided spectacular defensive work and score three runs to fuel the LSU offense.

"Kramer was a real sparkplug today both with his glove and on the bases," Mainieri said. "He's an excellent all-around athlete with great baseball instincts, and he made some tremendous plays today."

LSU got its first run of the day in the bottom of the second. Catcher Kade Scivicque started off the frame with a single to left before Robertson walked. Centerfield Andrew Stevenson then singled to left field to bring home Scivicque. While leftfielder Chris Sciambra was at the plate, Stevenson and Robertson executed a double steal, allowing Stevenson to score.

The bottom of the fourth produced two more runs for LSU. DH Dakota Dean reached first on a walk, Robertson was hit by a pitch and Stevenson laid down a bunt for a single. Sciambra hit a sacrifice fly to right field to score Dean, and shortstop Alex Bregman hit a fly out in foul territory to score Robertson.

Grambling threatened in the top of the sixth after a double by catcher Roger Diaz and a Dion Holbrook single. With runners on the corners, Poche' retired three straight batters via a pop out, a strike out and a ground out.

In the bottom half of the sixth, Robertson reached first on a walk. The freshman advanced to second on a wild pitch and scored on a throwing error by Diaz.

Junior Cody Glenn took the mound for LSU in the top of the seventh in relief of Poche'. Glenn pitched one inning and did not allow a hit.

In the bottom of the seventh, first baseman Chris Chinea hit a solo home run to left field. It was the first home run for LSU on the year and the first of Chinea's career.

Grambling's Brock Baker (0-1) was charged the loss. Baker pitched 5.1 innings, allowing seven hits and four earned runs with three walks and one strikeout.
