LSU suffered a heart breaker after they blew a lead in the top of the ninth to lose the series to Texas A&M. They’ve had an extra 24 hours to digest the loss and tonight they should have a walkthrough: Grambling. The Tigers are pretty bad and sit at 9-18 wheeling into April and sit all the way down at 276th in RPI.
LSU and Grambling only started playing in 2009 and the Tigers from upstate have never been the Bayou Bengals.
Todd Peterson will make his first collegiate start for LSU, and given Grambling’s talent expect to see some starters rest, if not start and play for a few innings.
Grambling: Christian Marquez (13.98 ERA, 18.2 IP, .615 K/BB [8/13])
LSU: Todd Peterson (5.68 ERA, 12.2 IP, 1.25 K/BB [5/4])
