Do or Die for LSU Tigers
BATON ROUGE - The LSU Tigers let a four-run lead slip through their grasp against the Houston Cougars Sunday night with a 5-4 loss to force a winner-take-all finale Monday night at 7 p.m.
Does that mean the Tigers also let go of the momentum in the Baton Rouge Regional?
"We're not worried, we have all the confidence in the world," said probable starter for Monday's decisive game, Alden Cartwright. "We have more pitching than they do, and our hitters are on fire."
Head coach Paul Mainieri said Cartwright would "most likely" be the starting pitcher for LSU Monday night.
Houston head coach Todd Whitting is confident in his arms going into the finale.
"We still have a lot down there," said Whitting talking about available pitchers in the bullpen. "We could pitch 'Johnny Wholestaff' if we wanted to, but we still have some bullets in there."
Before last night's game LSU had outscored its opponents 100-13 in its previous 10 games.
