Mainieri returns slumping Bregman to original spot in lineup, expresses confidence in All-American shortstop

BATON ROUGE - Alex Bregman continues to struggle, but LSU baseball head coach Paul Mainieri says he still has confidence in his All-American shortstop. 

The Tigers (20-8-1, 3-5-1) are in the midst of their first 4 game losing streak since 2011 and much of that stems from a dearth of hitting that goes well beyond Bregman's current 3-35 slump. 

"If you would have told me that alex bregman would go three for 35 and we'd win three games, i'd say how'd we do that?" said Mainieri on Monday.

" Because you know Bregman is such an important part of our offense. And the poor kid, you know, he's struggled. It's been somewhat mechanical, it's been somewhat mental. It's been somewhat he's been pressing, but I can tell you this: the kid has no quit in him, I haven't stopped believing in him for a second. He's too good of a hitter, he's too good of a player for this to continue."
