LSU baseball seeks 1st SEC series win; SLU goes after 15th straight win
Posted on 4/1/2016 3:04:00 AM.
The 14th ranked LSU Baseball team looks for its first series win in SEC play this weekend as they visit Auburn for a three-game series that starts tonight. The Tigers are 2-and-4 in league play and have lost three of their last four overall. Sophomore right-hander Alex Lange will start tonight on the mound tonight for the Tigers.

"The way we start out Friday, if we can get a "W" on Friday, it sets the whole tone for the entire weekend so we're just going to go out there and try to attack the zone, pound the strike zone, get some early outs and go deep in the game and try to save the bullpen as much as possible," Lange said. 
LSU enters this weekend’s action, tied for fifth place in the SEC West. Starting shortstop Kramer Robertson says they are trying to remain loose.
"We can't go up there and press, can't get nervous and feel like every game is a must-win game. We're just going to take it one game at a time and go out there and play relaxed and confident and I think we'll have good results," Robertson said.   
Southeastern Louisiana takes a 14-game winning streak into this weekend’s home series against Nicholls. The Lions are led on the mound by senior left-hander Kyle Cedotal, who is 4-2 with a 1.15 ERA. S-L-U Coach Matt Riser says Cedotal will get the start tonight.
"He's been starting on the mound or in the outfield for us since a true freshman so there's a lot of experience, there's a lot of big time ballgames he's been in. He loves pressure situations. He loves tight ballgame. When you get that young man out on Friday nights, he'll give you a chance to win every single time you go out," Riser said. 
The Lions are 20-6 on the season, 9-0 in the Southland Conference. Riser says his team is motivated to reach the NCAA Tournament after missing it last year.
"You guys returning, don't ever forget this feeling. Anytime you feel like you were cutting yourself short on a ground ball or an extra swing or an extra rep in the weight room or an extra sprint, go back and remember this moment, and let this moment motivate you and make you better because it's exactly the old cliche that what doesn't kill you will make you stronger, and it has so far with ballclub," Riser said.

    After meeting separately with Secretary of Defense James Mattis, both Sens. Lindsey Graham and John McCain said the military should do more to keep members of Congress aware of its counterterrorism operations around the world. Sen. Graham told reporters that one of the open questions surrounding the ambush in Niger, which killed four Americans, is whether it was the result of an intelligence failure.“It’s too early to say. That’s exactly the questions we should be asking ourselves. In war you fail, you make mistakes and the whole goal is to learn from your mistakes and not repeat them.” Graham said Sen. McCain will likely hold a hearing on the operation, and the strategy more broadly, next week. A spokeswoman for the Senate Armed Services Committee did not comment.Graham also said the military will likely change its rules of engagement in Africa, and anywhere else they need to be changed, so that forces can hit targets based on their status – for example, a member of the...
