LSU tops Vandy in extra innings to win the SEC

HOOVER, Ala. -

Pinch-hitter Chris Sciambra's single in the top of the 11th inning scored Jared Foster and lifted LSU to a 5-4 victory over Vanderbilt on Sunday in the Southeastern Conference tournament championship game.
    
It was the Tigers' first hit in 6 2-3 innings against Vandy relievers. LSU (52-9) claimed its SEC-best 10th tournament title in a battle of the top two seeds and teams that figure to be among the favorites to contend for a national title.
    
The Commodores (51-9) have lost in the championship game the past three years and are 0-4 since winning in 2007.
    
Foster was hit by a pitch from reliever Brian Miller with one out and stole second. Sciambra, batting for Andrew Stevenson, singled up the middle and the throw to the plate was off line.
    
LSU closer Chris Cotton (4-1) got three straight groundouts in the ninth.
