Opening Night GAMETHREAD: ULM at #1 LSU, 7 p.m., SECN+

New, 21 comments

Tigers unbox 2019 season against upstate rivals.

It’s Opening Day across college baseball and the Tigers open what should be a manageable weekend with the UL-system school that draws the least heat in Baton Rouge.

Each game this weekend can be viewed only on the internet via SEC Network +. Every game can be heard on Eagle 98.1.

Pitching Matchups

ULM: RHP Jacobs Barton, RS SR

LSU: RHP Zack Hess, JR

You’re not crazy if the Warhawks’ starter sets off some bells. He was transferred to ULM from Mississippi State after the Cannizaro fiasco. He sat out last season, and posted a 6.57 ERA in 2017 with 18 walks and 26 strikeouts in 2017.
