  • Jared Foster, LSU OF: Foster made the game-saving catch in the ninth inning to send it to extra innings. His diving grab went viral and was named No. 1 on ESPN SportsCenter’s top 10 plays Friday night. Texas A&M had the bases loaded with two outs, poised for a walk-off win before Foster’s grab. Here’s the catch (courtesy of @valleyshook).
  • Kurt McCune, LSU RHP: McCune retired three of his four batters (one was an intentional walk) in the 10th inning, leaving the bases loaded. He got the save in a pressure-packed situation. He took the mound with two on base and no outs.
  • Andrew Stevenson, LSU CF: Stevenson’s speed came through strong in the 10th inning. He scored the game-winning run, turning a single into a double, moving to third on a wild pitch and scoring on Mark Laird’s chopper to the pitcher. He went 2 for 5 at the plate.
  • Alex Bregman, LSU SS: Bregman continued his late-season surge. He had hits first three-hit game in nearly two months and drove in a pair of runs. That included a line drive homer over the left field wall in the first inning.

The Misses

  • Joe Broussard, LSU RHP: Broussard walked four, one intentionally, and allowed a hit in seven batters faced. It was his worst outing of the season.

The Turning Point

  • Stevenson turning a single into a double sparked that one-out rally in the 10th inning. He raced past first base as his line drive bounded off the right fielder, sliding into second barely safe. “Kicked off of him and I thought it was enough space,” he said. “Luckily got in there safe.”
