The Tigers could not wake up bats to makeup for one bad inning as LSU fell 3-2. I'm really wondering if Brent Bonvillain had a sufficient warmup, as he didn't do bullpen during the game and I did not arrive early enough to see if he warmed up pregame. Going single-foul out-single-single-single-pop out with 2 runs scored is devastating in the low run game that LSU plays and it ended up being the difference. The rest of the bullpen did well enough, with Joe Broussard getting the loss by giving up the eventual winning run while going 2 2/3 IP, the longest of any LSU pitcher today. Mainieri was betting that no matter the opposition, Gausman would be able to go long tomorrow, but with the exception for Broussard the relief pitcher use was managed well enough that they'll all be available tomorrow. The offense was about the same as it's been all year, but was actually better against Stratton than it was in the matchup that opened SEC play this year. He didn't go as long (6 IP today vs 8 2/3 IP in March) but was much less effective (8 K today v 17 K in March, allowed 5 H today v 4H in March, 2 ER v 1ER) but State relief was on lockdown and kept LSU from coming back. LSU had a shot when Rhymes got on on an error to lead off the B6, but the untimely return of the "ground into DP" killed the rally before it got off the ground. (You may disagree, but I believe Ross getting the PH at the end was more Mainieri planning for tomorrow than trying to spark a win today. Ross hasn't swung a bat in competition since Fri v Vandy 2 weeks ago and I doubt he's going be in the lineup tomorrow. But given how Dozar has been doing, I can see Ross getting in as an early DH sub tomorrow. Today was just getting him in front of live pitching.) Ole Miss tomorrow, bright and early with the 9:30 am start. In Gausman We Trust
