It was a rougher outing than expected for LSU pitching in the 5-4 victory over Lamar. Joe Broussard lasted just 2 innings, giving up 3 hits, no walks, and striking out 2 with 2 runs on a homer to right in the 1st. He was followed by half the bullpen, LSU using 8 pitchers in all, with Cotton getting the win for a 1.1IP outing with 1 hit and 2Ks and Goody recording his 5th save for a clean 9th. It was a save opportunity because the LSU bats seemed to only want to keep pace with Lamar instead of passing them. LSU tied or trailed by one until taking the lead in the 7th, stranding 7 in the process. Good thing then that Raph Rhymes, back fielding in left for the first time since his concussion at Florida, was still hitting on his torrid pace. Already leading the nation, Rhymes brought his BA up 12 points to .484 with a 3-for-4 night, driving in 3 runs, including the game winner in the 7th. It is a bit careless to speculate with half of the SEC slate left, but Rhymes is on pace to destroy the LSU single season BA record (.410 Russ Johnson 1994) and could challenge for the SEC mark (.525 David Magadan Alabama 1983) if he stays hot.
