GAMETHREAD: LSU @ Arkansas (3GMS)

Vintage-baseball_2084_50746068_medium


Arkansas comes into the weekend in about the same shape we are in. After a lackluster non-conf, the Hogs have dropped 2 of 3 in every SEC series (@ Auburn, v. Vandy, @ Bama). They've got a better bullpen than us with a handful of solid relievers. They aren't hitting as well as we are, with no one on the team cracking .350. They have stolen an impressive 60 bases off of 69 attempts.

I'm not sure what lineup changes we'll see this weekend for LSU, though the starting righties on Fri and Sat could see Dozar get the 1B start.

2 of 3 on TV this weekend, with Saturday on ESPNU (possibly hosted by the excellent SEC Thursday night crew) and Sunday is an Arkansas-based Cox Sports Broadcast (i.e. Swoboda) For you GeauxZone folks, Friday and Sunday will be available with live video thanks to a deal with the Arkansas internet folks.

Weather will be overcast and a bit windy, with a decent chance of rain on Sunday.

Elsewhere in college baseball, there are a pair of Top 25 ACC matchups as UNC travels to FSU and Virginia is at GT. On the west coast, CS-F hosts UC-I in a matchup that I think we are all rooting for the meteor strike in.
