After the LSU Baseball Team opened the season with a sweep over Maryland and a mid-week win over Lamar, Coach Paul Mainieri likes the way is club has played thus far. “I think you’d have to be impressed with what our pitchers have done so far,” Mainieri said.
Coach Mainieri visited with Bobby Hebert and me on Wednesday’s edition of Sports Talk. He went on to talk about playing the Cougars and Lions. Mainieri remembered when his former club, Air Force, use to struggle when he coached the Falcons against BYU. The coach also praised the job that SLU Coach Jay Artigues has done with the Lions program up in Hammond.
The Tigers are 4-0 on the season and are getting set for a weekend series in which LSU will play host to BYU and Southeastern Louisiana. LSU’s pitching has been incredible early on with a team ERA of less than 1.
LSU has allowed only five runs in four games. LSU defeated Maryland 1-0, 14-3 and 8-1 and LSU beat the Cardinals of Lamar 8-1 on Tuesday. The Tigers will take on BYU Thursday at 6:30PM, then the Tigers host the SLU Lions Friday Night at 7:00. LSU concludes their weekend play with a Saturday night date against the Cougars of BYU with a 6:00 p.m. first pitch.
