LSU softball to host McNeese Tuesday
BATON ROUGE- The LSU softball team will host McNeese State on Tuesday afternoon in their final non-conference midweek game of the season.
Fans that have made it to Tiger Park for the season-long Turn Up Tuesday’s promotion will receive their final stamp and be given an LSU softball visor when entering the gates.
LSU goes into the game against the Cowgirls with a 36-13 record for the season and 10-11 record in league play. The Tigers earned a sweep against the South Carolina Gamecocks over the weekend in the team’s final home SEC series of the year.
The wins pushed the team’s winning streak to six-straight, however the team is going in with the same attitude as the rest, according to head coach Beth Torina.
We are approaching this one a little differently just because McNeese is such a talented team,” Torina said.
“I know they have a very good player and they always play us tough whenever we face each other, so we are treating this game as we would any series going into it.”
The game will be the seventh game against an in-state opponent and the Tigers have a 6-0 mark against teams from the state thus far.
LSU has won eight of the last ten meetings against McNeese.
The Cowgirls will be streamed online through SEC Network+, with radio coverage on 107.3 FM.
The game starts at 6 p.m. in Tiger Park.
