Following LSU's 4-1 victory over Orgeron on Sunday night, Ducks head coach Mark Wasikowski had high praise for LSU freshman pitcher Javen Coleman who allowed just one run on three hits with three walks and struck out six batters over a career-long 6.0 innings. Per OregonLive:

Coleman had Oregon’s big three hitters, Yovan, Zavala and Matthews, befuddled all night. UO’s Nos. 2-4 hitters combined to go 1 for 11 with an RBI and six strikeouts, including 0 for 5 with an RBI and three strikeouts by the southpaw. It was the second-worst combined performance of the season for UO’s big three, behind only a 1 for 13 with eight strikeouts in a 5-4 loss to Arizona on March 26.

“He was a three-pitch mix up to 94 miles an hour with a breaking ball and a changeup for a strike whenever he wanted to,” Wasikowski said. “It was a Friday night type of a performance out of a young man, you really do tap your cap to him. He did an outstanding job and anybody who’s showing that, that’s what you see on TV when you’re watching Major League Baseball and often you don’t even see that good because you don’t often see command of three pitches with that kind of velocity from the left side. He was tremendous. He did a great job and all the credit goes to him.”
