Just to put it simply: The Tigers’ are red hot.
Paul Mainieri has his squad playing their best baseball of the season, at the right time. LSU swept the weekend series behind masterful pitching from Alex Lange, Jared Poche and Eric Walker. On Sunday afternoon, Walker took a no-hitter into the eighth inning, finishing with 99 pitches, 1 hit and 1 run in LSU’s 9-1 victory.
This brings LSU into a tie for first place in the SEC, with a deciding series against Mississippi State this weekend. First, the Tigers will face Northwestern State on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at Alex Box Stadium. Catch the game on SEC Network+, or listen live on LSU Sports Radio Network.
