LSU head coach Paul Mainieri notched the 1500th win of his coaching career the same night LSU punched its ticket to the SEC Tournament, but the 12-6 win was anything but easy.

LSU and Texas A&M went to extra innings, locked at 6-all.

LSU went without a hit from the fifth inning til the 11th.

But, the offense wouldn’t truly come through and break the game open until a six-run 13th inning.

LSU and Texas A&M face off for the rubber match on Saturday at 2pm.
