HOOVER, Ala. (AP) — Antoine Duplantis had two hits and three RBIs to lead LSU to an 11-0 win over top-seeded Florida on Saturday in the Southeastern Conference Tournament.
The Tigers (36-24) were leading 10-0 in the sixth Friday night when the game was suspended because of dense fog. It was decided after the top of the seventh under the 10-run mercy rule.
The Gators (42-17) were eliminated but are likely to be the No. 1 overall national seed. LSU moved on to face Arkansas with a spot in the championship game on the line.
The Tigers scored eight runs in the sixth, all but one before play was halted.
Matthew Beck (3-1) threw four innings in just his second start of the season for LSU. Cam Sanders pitched two innings and Devin Fontenot one.
Jack Leftwich (4-5) allowed two hits and three runs, one earned, in five innings for the Gators.
