LSU will play a three games series at College Station against the Aggies with game one of the series Thursday night here on Tiger Radio WWL.
LSU was a perfect 4-0 last week with wins over McNeese State and Florida. The Tigers beat the Cowboys in a midweek game 7-3 and then LSU swept the Gators. In three wins over Florida, the Tigers outscored the Gators 26-8.
The Tigers are now 43-6 overall on the season and in first place of the SEC West with a conference mark of 19-5.
Despite all the recent success, Coach Mainieri says he is concerned about Texas A&M.
“They may not have a great record but they are a very good team. We just have to go out and play well in each game,” he told me.
LSU will send one of the nation’s hottest pitchers to the mound in game two of the series when Aaron Nola goes to the hill for LSU. Nola has pitched four straight complete games and he is coming off his second shutout of the season as he guided the Tigers to a 5-0 shutout win over the Gators last Friday night.
