Tigers play their first midweek game of the year against the Lions

via @LSUBaseballEQ

LSU plays their first midweek game of the 2019 season and, like all midweek games, the result of the game will surely lead to overzealous outrage or confidence from the community.

All-Time Matchup

LSU leads Southeastern 70-18 and has won 24 of the last 26. But LSU and SELU played to a 1-1 split last year, with the Lions winning 5-4 in Hammond and the Tigers returning the favor 4-2 in Baton Rouge.

Pitching Matchups

SELU: So. LH Trey Shaffer (3-1, 3.90 ERA, 30.0 IP, 11 BB, 35 SO in 2018)

LSU: Fr. RH Cole Henry (collegiate debut)

The Tigers opened the 2019 season with a weekend sweep over ULM, Army and Air Force while the Lions went winless against La. Tech. Southeastern got lit up to the tune of 40 runs and 43 hits over the weekend.
