Southeastern Louisiana has emerged as one of the better mid-majors in college baseball in this decade, but they’ve had the displeasure of living in LSU’s shadow during the time, playing in a Baton Rouge Region7al twice during the time.
LSU has dominated the series with the Lions 67-17, including 21 of the last 22 with the lone dropped game coming in 2008.
SLU is coming off of Southland victories against two former LSU assistants after they swept Blake Dean’s UNO to open conference play and then took two out of three from Will Davis’ Lamar.
SLU: Carlisle Koester (3.00 ERA, 18 IP, 1.78 K/BB [16/9])
LSU: Zack Hess (3.26 ERA, 19.1 IP, 2.44 K/BB [22/9])
