Baseball Drops Game Two to Cal, 5-2

BATON ROUGE – In his first career weekend start, freshman Cole Henry delivered in a four-inning performance, but it was not enough as No. 9 LSU dropped game two of the series, 5-2, to Cal Saturday afternoon at Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field.

The Tigers dropped to 10-4 on the season, while Cal moved to 6-6 after the first seven-inning game of the doubleheader.

Henry worked four innings of scoreless baseball and only allowed two hits.

Cal freshman Grant Holman moved to 2-0 on the year after allowing two runs and five hits in six innings of work.

LSU catcher Brock Mathis broke the scoreless game open in the bottom of the fifth with a solo home run to left field. The homer was Mathis’ third of the season.

Cal erupted for five runs in the sixth off of LSU’s Todd Peterson. The Bears tied the game with a single through the right side by catcher Korey Lee. With the bases loaded, second baseman Darren Baker singled to plate Andrew Vaughn. Cal then scored a run on an RBI ground out by shortstop Sam Wezniak and two-RBI single by center fielder Brandon Mcllwain.
