Notes on the Tigers
LSU won all four of its games last week to improve to 10-1 this season ... LSU starting pitchers have not allowed an earned run in 27.2 consecutive innings of work ... the Tigers starters have not given up an earned run since February 24, when junior right-hander Ryan Eades allowed a run in the sixth inning against Southeastern Louisiana ... sophomore left-hander Cody Glenn earned two victories in two starts last week, firing 14 shutout innings while defeating Louisiana-Lafayette and Nicholls State ... Glenn worked seven scoreless innings at UL-Lafayette on Tuesday, limiting the Cajuns to no runs on three hits with no walks and one strikeout while firing 69 pitches ... he defeated Nicholls on Sunday with another seven shutout innings, this time allowing no runs on three hits with one walk and five strikeouts while throwing 90 pitches ... Glenn has not allowed an earned run in 19 total innings this season, as he is 2-0 on the year with a 0.00 ERA, three walks, 11 strikeouts and a .141 opponent batting average ... Ryan Eades was dominant in his outing Saturday against Brown, firing career-high 11 strikeouts while limiting the Bears in six innings to no runs on five hits with no walks ... Eades is 2-0 this season with a 0.49 ERA in 18.1 innings, and he has recorded two walks and 22 strikeouts ... sophomore right-hander Aaron Nola also posted a career-best strikeouts total when he registered 11 Ks against Brown on Friday ... Nola didn't figure in the decision of the Tigers' 4-3 win, but he limited the Bears to just one unearned run on three hits in seven innings with no walks ... freshman shortstop Alex Bregman batted .389 (7-for-18) in the Tigers' four wins last week with one triple, one homer and six RBI ... he drove in four runs in LSU's 11-2 win Tuesday at Louisiana-Lafayette, blasting his first career collegiate home run, a three-run dinger ... Bregman also provided a crucial, game-tying hit in the Tigers' 4-3 win over Brown on Friday - with LSU trailing 3-2 in the bottom of the eighth inning, he delivered a two-out, RBI single that tied the game with Brown and allowed the Tigers to eventually win in the bottom of the ninth ... on the year, Bregman is batting .356 (16-for-45) with two doubles, one triple, one homer and 12 RBI ... LSU's 4-3 win over Brown on Friday marked the Tigers' second walk-off victory of the season - LSU also posted a 6-5 walk-off win over BYU on February 21 ... with the scored tied 3-3 in the bottom of the ninth on Friday versus Brown, second baseman JaCoby Jones led off with a walk, advanced to second on DH Tyler Moore's single, moved to third on catcher Chris Chinea's groundout and scored the winning run on third baseman Christian Ibarra's sacrifice fly to left field.
