Landon Marceaux showed why he garnered so much hype preseason.

LSU’s freshman right-hander went seven innings, allowing just two hits, one run, while striking out seven Auburn hitters. There’s no question that Marceaux looked like a weekend rotation starter from his first to last pitch.

With the win, the Tigers capture the series vs. Auburn and will go for the sweep tomorrow at 2 p.m. CT on SEC Network+. A series sweep would put LSU at 18 conference wins and likely locks up a regional host site.

Paul Mainieri says he hasn’t yet decided on who will start tomorrow.
