HOOVER, Ala. (AP) — Kyle Bouman carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning and LSU hit three home runs to advance into the Southeastern Conference tournament championship game with an 11-1 victory over Arkansas on Saturday.

The defending champion Tigers (43-14-1) scored twice in the bottom of the eighth to win under the 10-run rule. They have won their first three tournament games by a combined 29-4 and face either Florida or Kentucky Sunday for the title.

Kade Scivicque went 3 for 4 with a homer, double and three RBIs. Tyler Moore and Conner Hale also homered for the Tigers, who had 16 hits.

The Razorbacks (38-23) trailed 8-0 when they put their first three batters on base in the sixth. Bouman (5-2) walked Eric Fisher with the bases loaded for the only run.

The lefthander allowed two hits in six innings.

LSU is seeking its fifth tournament championship in seven years.
