The LSU and Tulane baseball teams face off Friday with hopes of staying in the winner's bracket in the Baton Rouge regional. The Tigers won the lone battle between the two teams, 11-5, in New Orleans earlier this season.
WHO: LSU vs Tulane, Baton Rouge regional
WHEN: 2 p.m. Friday
WHERE: Alex Box Stadium
RADIO: WDGL-FM, 98.1 (Baton Rouge); WRBH, 88.3 (New Orleans); KLWB-FM, 103.7 (Lafayette)
RANKINGS: LSU is the No. 5 national seed in the NCAA tournament and the No. 1 seed in the Baton Rouge regional. Tulane is the No. 4 seed in the Baton Rouge regional.
PROBABLE STARTERS: LSU — TBD; Tulane — LHP Dylan Carmouche (5-8, 5.44)
WHAT TO WATCH FOR: How did Tulane go from a 15-win regular season to a spot in the NCAA regionals? The Green Wave ran the table in the American Athletic Conference tournament, and Dylan Carmouche played a big part in that. He allowed three hits and three walks in eight innings against Memphis, then came back on two days' rest to throw three more innings in the title game against East Carolina. Tulane has not named a starter for Friday's game, but the left-handed Carmouche is a good bet.
