LSU’s season ended last night with a crushing four-to-three loss in ten innings to North Carolina in the Chapel Hill Regional. Coach Jay Johnson didn’t want to see the season end…
Cut 16 (11) “…Super Regional at home.”

Gage Jump was the losing pitcher. After throwing 105 pitches on Friday, Johnson called on Jump to get the final three outs in the ninth, but he allowed the Tar Heels to tie the game.

Senior right-hander Will Hellmers finished his LSU career with a heck of an outing as he threw 5.2 innings of shutout baseball, allowing just two hits, two walks and he struck out four.
