Two series, two straight sweeps.
Paul Mainieri has LSU playing arguably the best baseball in the country right now. With a crucial weekend series for the SEC West crown, the Tigers swept Mississippi State to win the division and the conference as a whole. The Tigers were led by phenomenal pitching, specifically from Alex Lange and Jared Poche. LSU shortstop Kramer Robertson noted, “This is why we all came back. Championships like this make it worth it.”
Due to numbers, LSU, the co-champs with Florida, will be the No. 2 seed in the SEC Tournament and play the winner of Texas A&M-Missouri on Wednesday. Overall, LSU heads into postseason play red hot, and their doing so without the dominance of their best hitter. Greg Deichmann is 1-for-12 in his last five SEC games.
LSU, who’s in search to go to Omaha for the first time since 2015, will need Deichmann’s bat to get hot.
