BATON ROUGE - The LSU softball team capped off a perfect 6-0 weekend with a 8-0 win against Bucknell in five innings.

Sophomore Shelbi Sunseri (2-0) started in the circle for the Tigers and allowed with three hits and no runs.

LSU wasted no time getting on the board in its first go around at bat. Aliyah Andrews was able to get on base first with a leadoff single. Taryn Antoine pushed Aliyah Andrews across home plate with a triple - her third of the season -- to deep right field. Antoine then punched in another run to give LSU a 2-0 lead in the first.

Bucknell's defense was able to keep LSU scoreless in the second and third innings.

In the bottom of the fourth, Amanda Sanchez put the momentum back in LSU's favor doubling down the right field line. Sunseri then hit a two-run bomb over the center field wall to give LSU a 4-0 lead. It was Sunseri's fourth home run of the season.

LSU posed a threat again in the fifth with Andrews, Antoine and Doyle loading the bases with no outs. Sanchez stepped up to the plate and delivered a two-run double through left field to give LSU a 6-0 lead.

Sunseri was hit by a pitch to load the bases once again with no outs. Amber Serrett ripped a single through left field to score Doyle and go up 7-0. With the bases still loaded, Georgia Clark drew a walk to score Sanchez and end the game in five innings.
