The Pontiff Classic has provided some of LSU Baseball's best games during the years and tonight is no exception. We last saw Southern Miss (16-10, 1-2 in CUSA) in Omaha when they went 2 and barbecue for Corky Palmer's retirement party. We share alot of common opponents this season:
Northwestern 2-1 (11-0, 7-3, 5-7)
USL 2-1 (4-0, 6-1, 6-10)
UNO 1-0 (11-2)
ULM 2-0 (14-5, 8-7)
They are tied for last in the CUSA, but they've only played one conference series. Lead-off hitter 1B Adam Doleac leads most of their batting categories.
No TV, Cloudy in the 80's, rain expected late tonight.
LSU, Fr. RH Mike Reed (0-0, 6.00 ERA, 13 K/9 BB)
