LSU – Fr. RH AJ Labas (2-1, 2.95 ERA, 21.1 IP, 3 BB, 16 SO)
Nicholls – So. LH Bryan Taylor (2-3, 4.82 ERA, 28.0 IP, 19 BB, 21 SO)

“I like the way our pitching is coming together; we just need to get healthy with our position players and become a little better offensively. We’ve also got to tighten it up on defense with some of our fundamentals. We’ve passed the midway point now of the regular season, and this is the time that we’re supposed to start getting better. We’ve won 18 games without a completely healthy team, and we’re only one game out of first place in the SEC West. We’re going to keep battling, and I feel we’ll start making a significant move in a positive direction.”
