The third ranked LSU Tigers Baseball Team is playing as good as any team in the country right now. LSU will play host to the Auburn Tigers this weekend with the first of a three game series beginning at 7PM Friday Night on WWL Radio 870AM.
“I tell you Auburn has been one of those teams that has had our number the last few seasons,” LSU Coach Paul Mainieri said to Bobby Hebert and Deke Bellavia on SportsTalk. “No one around here is taking Auburn lightly. They have a sound team with a good line-up and we need to play well this weekend.” Auburn has had the better of LSU in each of the last two seasons.
Coach Mainieri went on to talk about the progression of his Tigers and recapped the Tigers big weekend in Starkville last weekend as LSU took two of three games over Mississippi State. LSU was going for a sweep of the Bulldogs in Starkville for the first time since 1975, but MSU was able to win the third game of that series.
