LSU Bombs Ole Miss To Advance To SEC Title Game

HOOVER, Ala. (AP) _ Todd Linden and the LSU Tigers are giving Skip Bertman one heckuva Southeastern Conference tournament sendoff. Linden hit two home runs and tied the tournament record with six RBIs to lead the Tigers to a 12-6 win over Mississippi Saturday, putting the defending champions into the title game despite a huge game from the Rebels' Josh Christian. LSU (39-18-1) has won its three tournament games by a total of 27 runs, winning the first two on the SEC's 10-run mercy rule. The Tigers face the winner of the Mississippi State-South Carolina game on Sunday, seeking Bertman's sixth SEC tournament title in his final season. Christian went 5-for-5 with a pair of two-run homers for Mississippi (38-21-1), which won two games in the tournament for the first time since 1977. The Rebels have lost seven of their last 11 heading into the NCAA regionals. Coach Mike Bianco fell to 3-7 against his alma mater, including Thursday's 13-2 defeat. The Rebels scored four runs in the final three innings, including Christian's ninth-inning homer. Linden hit a three-run shot in the fourth and a leadoff homer in the sixth for his first homers in nine games. He drove in runs with sacrifice flies in his first two at bats. Sean Barker also had a solo homer, giving the Tigers seven in the tournament. LSU drew eight bases on balls, seven leading to runs. Ryan Theriot walked three times, doubled and scored three runs. Tim Nugent (7-2) allowed two runs over five innings for the Tigers. Mississippi starter Mike Gray (3-3), the first of five Rebel pitchers in the game, lasted only two outs and gave up three runs.
