HOOVER, Ala. (AP) — Todd Peterson pitched five innings of relief and doubled home two runs in his first college at-bat Thursday as No. 8 seed LSU beat No. 5 seed South Carolina 6-4 in a 12-inning Southeastern Conference tournament elimination game.

LSU (35-24) plays Friday against the loser of the game between No. 1 seed Florida and No. 4 seed Arkansas.

Daniel Cabrera broke a 3-all tie with a two-out single in the 12th for LSU that scored Antoine Duplantis. Peterson followed with his double.

South Carolina scored once in the bottom of the 12th and had the tying run at the plate when Peterson struck out Jonah Bride to end the game.

Peterson (1-3) allowed two runs in five innings. South Carolina’s John Gilreath (0-1) gave up three unearned runs in 2 1/3 innings.

South Carolina (33-24) tied it in the ninth when LT Tolbert tripled and scored on Jacob Olson’s single.
