LSU’s strange baseball season took a turn for the better last weekend.
The Tigers won two of three games on the road against Mississippi State, which was a consensus top-five team in the major national polls. LSU (19-9, 6-3 Southeastern Conference) dropped the first game 6-5 on Thursday night, but then rallied to win 10-5 on Friday and 11-2 on Saturday.
“We haven’t put it all together until this past weekend,” LSU coach Paul Mainieri said. “I thought we did well in all three phases of the game – offense, defense and pitching. Because of that, we played good, competitive baseball.”
LSU was considered one of the top teams in the nation coming into the season and got off to a good start in February
