Grant Koch then singled and Jared Gates walked.

The Tigers increased the advantage to 4-1 in the sixth when leftfielder Antoine Duplantis led off with a triple and later scored on a sacrifice fly by Coomes. No one else manufactured multiple hits and Rooker went hitless for the second-straight game.

SC finished the SEC Tournament with eight homers and now have 58 on the year.

The LSU Tigers won yet another Southeastern Conference Tournament title, this time with a superb outing by freshman pitcher Eric Walker and a ninth-inning decision that wasn't exactly by the book. Robertson opened the game with a home run.

Cole was 3 for 4 with three runs and two RBI.

LSU outhit SC 14-3. Coming into the game, Kenley was 0-for-19 at the plate with three runs scored, but made his fourth start of the year at third base, a position he has not made an error at this season. He allowed four runs on four hits in 1.1 innings of work. Walker also handled the Razorbacks' big hitter Chad Spanberger to just 0-for-3 at the plate with one walk.

Auburn's best chance came in the bottom of the third inning, when Bo Decker and Will Holland drew back-to-back leadoff walks off Taccolini, who entered Arkansas' second game of the day with a 5.01 ERA.

Luke Bonfield's two-run home run gave the Hogs a lead in the first inning, and Arkansas went up 3-0 in the second, but would not score the rest of the game. Deichmann hit a solo homer in the third to complete the day's scoring for the Tigers. They put together the three-run inning and we gave them a couple of runs there by not making a play on the ground ball.

The Razorbacks (42-16) won after seven innings on the mercy rule and face 11-time champion LSU in Sunday's championship game. When I am up there, I try to get every pitch I can and at least get swings on them. Nick Coomes, Josh Smith and Bryce Jordan drove in one apiece for the Tigers. It only took the Hogs seven innings to dispatch the Tigers and Spanberger's record-setting three home runs and seven RBIs set the tone for the game. He also homered in his first two at-bats against Florida on Saturday and doubled three times during the tournament. Schultz has 38 victories. He exited after just 3⅓ innings after allowing seven runs on six hits with five strikeouts.

"There's all those lessons that you can take from it (the game)", Auburn head coach Butch Thompson said.

The Razorbacks, meanwhile, have yet to taste success in the SEC tournament. We knew how hard it is to recover from that, so we were all thinking that he wasn't going to stay in the game for very long. SC was playing their fifth game in five days. Credit their hitters, they did a really nice job.
