QUICK GAMER | LSU baseball defeated Texas Southern, 16-5, on Wednesday night to improve to 12-5 overall on the season.

The Tigers won, but the game’s meaning was lessened after the sad news broke that Coach Paul Mainieri’s father, Demie, passed away at age 90 just hours before first pitch. Unbelievably, Mainieri still coached in the dugout.

Next, LSU begins SEC play with a three-game set vs. Kentucky on Friday night at Alex Box Stadium. The Wildcats enter the series with a record of 13-4.
