Maybe the time off this week wasn't a good thing for LSU. There was no midweek game this week because it was exam week on campus in Baton Rouge, and that lack of game action might have been harmful to a team who's consistently under-performed this season.

Last night's game had all the markings of an LSU team that is full of talent, but just can't close. Here's more from the Louisiana Radio Network:

"Tough, tough loss for the LSU baseball team last night as they had multiple chances to score a bunch of runs instead, they lost 3-2 to South Carolina. The Tigers were two-for-16 with runners on base, 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position and 0-for-3 with the bases loaded. For the game, LSU left 11 runners on base. The loss drops the Tigers 1.5 games back of Auburn for the overall lead in the SEC."
