Baton Rouge, La. - In recent weeks and particularly in conference play, LSU Baseball's line-up has become a run-producing machine.
The top-ranked Tigers lead the SEC in batting average, runs scored, and home runs, and they made Kentucky's respected pitching staff look average last weekend, as LSU tallied 31 runs in three games.
Senior first baseman Mason Katz knows how special this group is "It's really impressive, we talked about our line-up and what our line-up can be, and the potential it has, and what we've done this season has been very good.
The Tigers' version of murderer's row: Alex Bregman, Raph Rhymes and Mason Katz, has been outstanding, with all three hitting .350 or better, but others are stepping up their game as well, like junior utility JaCoby Jones "This is the best team I've ever played on. We're extremely dangerous, me and Ty Ross are coming around. Bregman is an unbelievable hitter, Raph [Rhymes] is always there, Mason [Katz]...[Sean] McMullen is coming around, [Mark] Laird can hit a ground ball to shortstop and beat it out. We're just really dangerous.
Metairie native Sean McMullen has been a sparkplug in the leadoff hole, and the recent emergence of Jones and Ross from their slumps now has the entire line-up in sync according to freshman sensation Alex Bregman "When one through nine are swinging the bats, we feed off each other, and it's really fun."
