Tigers prep for elimination game against Tar Heels
OMAHA, Neb. - LSU's appearance in the College World Series is in jeopardy as they prepare to take on North Carolina in an elimination game Tuesday.
The Tigers dropped the tournament opener against UCLA 2-1 Sunday night, while the Tar Heels fell 8-1 to North Carolina State.
"It was a tough, tough loss that's for sure," said LSU head coach Paul Mainieri. "There's nothing but great teams in this tournament and very little margin for error. We've got to play a little bit better."
LSU will play as the home team against UNC after winning a coin toss.
The game is scheduled for 2 p.m. CT Tuesday.
