What a great weekend of baseball it was. Friday was exactly what every LSU fan wanted to see. Ranaudo was back in form pitching 6 innings with 8 K's while Dean got off his slump and nailed two dingers to right. Saturday's huge crowd set both the paid (12,313) and actual (10,019) attendance records and saw a fantastic game with 3 solo homers in the 2nd, including back-to-backs by Nola and Dean. Bourgeois had a good 5 1/3 outing with 7 K's and Ott put the clamps on a late Bama rally, closing the last inning and a third. Sunday's 14 inning marathon for the sweep saw impressive outings from both Matulis and Ott, with Ott pitching both a career and LSU-staff high 7 innings in the long stalemate. Dozar's solo shot in the bottom of the 14th for the win was his 1st of the year. It's a long week ahead for baseball with the NSU "home and home" followed by a road series at Ole Miss.
Down the road aways, Softball completed a sweep of the Hawgs on Senior Day.
