This season, LSU Baseball has some major expectations. There are people and publications that have already named them National Champions. Now that may be a little too far, but this team is stacked.

However, after 8 and a half innings against UL Monroe in their opening game, the National Champion talked looked a little silly.

Even though LSU won 12-7, it wasn't an easy night for the Tigers.

Zack Hess, LSU's star pitcher, gave up three runs in the first inning, and ended up allowing 5 runs and 6 hits over 3.2 innings. By the time LSU headed to the plate in the 8th, they found themselves tied with the ULM Warhawks 7-7.

But, in the bottom half of the 8th, Antoine Duplantis, one of the leaders of this LSU Tigers Baseball squad, came to the plate with the bases loaded...

Duplantis cracked his second home run of the night, this time a grand slam. Daniel Cabrera added two home runs for the Tigers as well, but he only totaled 5 RBIs, while Duplantis had 6 RBIs. Which means the two totaled all of LSU's RBIs for the night (one run was unearned).
