(WBRZ) - Aaron Nola tallied eight strikeouts in seven innings and Alex Bregman gave the Tigers a head start 1-0 lead with a single in the third inning, but it wasn't enough for #2 LSU to hold on vs Arkansas Thursday night. The Razorbacks came up with clutch hitting down the stretch to pull out the 4-1 victory over the second-ranked Tigers.
