Deke Bellavia: Tigers set for another big SEC series
The 3rd ranked LSU Tigers are gearing up for another big Southeastern Conference series when the Florida Gators come to town. Florida has been hot, winning their last three series. The Gators are 25-20 overall and 12-9 in SEC play. Florida swept South Carolina earlier this season.
Coach Paul Mainieri visited with Bobby Hebert and me on SportsTalk to talk about this hot SEC matchup. “They are a hot team right now and Florida always has great players,” Mainieri said. Florida was 11-16 at the end of March before posting a 14-4 record during the month of April.
Coach Mainieri announced his pitching rotation. He’ll send Cody Glenn to the mound for LSU Thursday night. Aaron Nola will pitch Friday. Ryan Eades will start for the Tigers in the series finale Saturday. You can listen to all the Tigers versus Gators games on WWL Radio (the BIG 870AM or 105.3 WWL-FM).
The Tigers lost their first SEC series of the season last weekend dropping two of three games to the South Carolina Gamecocks. “We have a lot to be proud of. It’s hard to win all of your series. We were able to bounce back with a nice win over McNeese to win our 40th game of the season.”
