Rough Start For LSU Baseball Against Notre Dame
LSU Baseball got their season under-way on 1130 The Tiger this weekend, but it wasn't the start the team, or their fans, were hoping for. The expectations aren't as high as they were last year, and there are already injuries to deal with. But after an incredible Friday night game, hopes may have started to rise.
The rest of the weekend didn't go that way though. Here's more from the Louisiana Radio Network:
"Rough start to the baseball season, as the LSU Tigers lost two of three from Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish clinched the series victory with an 11-3 drubbing of LSU. The Bayou Bengals had a dramatic come from behind victory on Friday, but it was all down hill from there. Coach Paul Mainieri says it’s hard to find any positives.
For the weekend, LSU’s starting pitchers allowed 16 earned run runs in 10.2 innings. They walked 10 and struck out four and had an ERA of 13.50. LSU also struggled at the plate on Sunday as they were 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position.
It’s the first time LSU lost a season opening weekend series since 1999 versus Texas. LSU will host UNO Wednesday and then the Longhorns come to the Box for a weekend three game series."
