LSU used an eight-run fifth inning, highlighted by a bases-clearing double from senior right fielder Sean McMullen, to power past Toledo, 15-1, Saturday night in Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field.

LSU (6-0) returns to Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field Sunday to face Texas Southern (2-5) at 3 p.m. The contest will follow an 11 a.m. matchup between Toledo and Virginia Tech, which is free to the public.

Junior left-hander Kyle Bouman (2-0) was credited with the win after allowing seven hits, one earned run and striking out three in six innings.

"I thought Kyle worked out of some jams early on and got better as the game wore on," said LSU coach Paul Mainieri. "He's a strike thrower, and he's going to give up some hits, but he competed extremely well and allowed our defense to make some plays behind him.

"Overall, I thought we really played a well-rounded game," Mainieri continued. "We had a lot of very good at-bats, and early in the game we made their starter throw a lot of pitches. That helped us break the game open as he began to wear down after throwing so many pitches over the first couple of innings."

The Rockets struck first in the top of the second inning after an RBI single from Zack Michael. Bouman got Tyler Grogg to ground into a double play to get out of the bases-loaded jam.

LSU responded with a run in the bottom of the second inning when Andrew Stevenson got to first on a fielder's choice and Kramer Robertson plated him on an RBI double off Toledo third-baseman John Martillotta's glove.

The Tigers answered the call again in the bottom of the third inning with three runs after back-to-back singles by Tyler Moore and Kade Scivicque and a two-RBI triple by Stevenson, which marked the first triple of his career. Robertson then followed up with an RBI single to right field that plated Stevenson and ended Rockets starter Cameron Palmer's night.

Mark Laird beat out Martillotta's throw on a soft ground ball before Alex Bregman hit an RBI double down the third-base line for the Tigers' fifth run of the night. Conner Hale followed up with a pinch-hit RBI double, his first extra-base hit of the year, to score Bregman.

The eight-run fifth inning was sparked and fueled by McMullen, who reached first after an error on the second baseman. Laird then singled to left before Bregman walked to load the bases. Ibarra scored McMullen on a fielder's choice.

Jarret DeHart and Moore followed with RBI singles. Scivique then walked before Jake Fraley singled up the middle to plate DeHart and Moore. Robertson singled to load the bases for McMullen, who cleared them with a double.

It was the second consecutive game McMullen recorded three RBIs. McMullen currently leads the team with eight RBIs on the season. Robertson finished 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI.

Hunter Devall, Henri Faucheux and Nate Fury all provided strong relief for Bouman, throwing one scoreless inning apiece to hold the Rockets to one run.

Palmer (1-1) was charged with the loss after allowing four earned runs on six hits and three walks in 2.1 innings pitched.
