Notes on the Tigers
LSU is 9-6 in the Southeastern Conference, and the Tigers are just one game behind first-place Georgia and Mississippi State in the overall league standings … senior rightfielder Antoine Duplantis has 312 career hits at LSU and has a chance to become the all-time hits leader in SEC history; former LSU first baseman Eddy Furniss is the all-time SEC hits leader with 352 from 1995-98 … Duplantis is No. 4 on the LSU career hits list, and he is just the sixth LSU player to collect 300 career hits … during this past weekend’s series at Missouri, he surpassed former LSU All-American Todd Walker (1992-94) for fourth place on the all-time LSU hits chart … Duplantis also collected his 15th career triple in the Missouri series, tying Walker for No. 1 on the all-time LSU triples list … senior second baseman Brandt Broussard led LSU at the plate in the Missouri series, batting .385 (5-for-13) with two doubles and four RBI … in LSU’s 12-11 win over Mizzou on Friday night, Broussard was 2-for-5 with a double and three RBI to lead LSU’s 13-hit output … senior rightfielder Antoine Duplantis and freshman first baseman Cade Beloso each drove in three runs in the Missouri series … junior centerfielder Zach Watson and senior third baseman Chris Reid each produced two RBI in the Missouri series, but both saw only limited action due to injury … Watson suffered a groin injury in the eighth inning of Game 1 and did not play for the remainder of the series … Reid strained a hamstring early in Game 2, causing him to leave the contest after the third inning and miss the rest of the series … junior right-hander Todd Peterson was brilliant in relief on Friday night at Missouri to earn his third win of the season … Peterson entered the game at the start of the seventh inning with the score tied 11-11 and worked three perfect innings with five strikeouts … LSU scored the eventual winning run in the top of the 10th inning to give Peterson the victory.
