LSU blanks Alabama 3-0 in SEC tournament

— HOOVER, Ala. (AP) — Cody Glenn pitched seven scoreless innings as LSU beat Alabama 3-0 in the second round of the Southeastern Conference tournament on Wednesday.

Glenn (7-2) scattered five hits, walked none and struck out two. Nick Rumbelow and Chris Cotton each worked a scoreless inning of relief to complete the shutout. Cotton earned his 13th save of the season.

LSU (49-8) scored the only three runs in the game during the first inning. Freshman Alex Bregman, who finished 3-for-4, hit a double during the rally.

Alabama (33-25) managed just six hits — all singles. Charley Sullivan (5-6) pitched a complete game, but took the loss, giving up three runs on eight hits and two walks.

LSU advances to play Arkansas while Alabama drops to the loser's bracket and will face Mississippi. Both games will be played on Thursday.
