LSU cruises past Ole Miss, into SEC final

HOOVER, Ala. — Ben Alsup tossed a one-hitter to lead LSU back into the Southeastern Conference championship game with an 8-0 victory over Ole Miss on Saturday.
Making just his second start of the season, Alsup (4-0) struck out seven and walked two in a game that was delayed 90 minutes and shortened to seven innings because of rain. He faced only two batters over the minimum thanks to a double play, and the hit he gave up was an infield single that trickled off his glove in a reflexive stab that might have kept second baseman Tyler Hanover from turning it into an out.
