Tiger baseball hits No. 1

LSU is ranked No. 1 in the Collegiate Baseball magazine poll released Monday. The top-ranked Tigers (7-0) play host to No. 13 Louisiana-Lafayette at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field.

The 2014 LSU team is the fifth Tiger squad to earn the top ranking during the eight-season tenure of coach Paul Mainieri.

The 2013 team was ranked No. 1 for one week in April and again in late May as the Tigers entered the NCAA Tournament. The 2012 squad held a No. 1 ranking twice, once in mid-April and once in early June.

The 2009 team, which won the national championship, was ranked No. 1 in seven different weeks. The 2010 Fighting Tiger squad held a No. 1 ranking for three weeks.
