Bayou Brew 6/3: Stayin' Alive

Today, we're recapping the weekend of LSU baseball and more.

Good morning! LSU pitcher Luke Holman is dominant on the mound, but there’s another side of his story off the field. WAFB told the story of “Cool Hand Luke.”

What else did we pour into today’s Brew?

⚾️ Onto game seven
🏈 Looking ahead
🐯 And much, much more!

The Powerhouse. NCAA postseason has arrived for the LSU Baseball team. The Tigers sweep Ole Miss in the final regular-season series and take time to honor the seven seniors who made an incredible impact on the program during their time in Baton Rouge. After reaching the SEC Tournament Championship game on the back of seven-straight victories and heroic fashion, the Tigers now prepare for the NCAA Chapel Hill Regional.


🔼 Stayin’ Alive. LSU baseball has been battling through the Chapel Hill Regional throughout the weekend. Steven Milam started the weekend with a walk-off home run to beat Wofford 4-3. The Tigers fell to North Carolina on Saturday to force a Sunday elimination game. LSU bounced back to defeat Wofford once again on Sunday. They went on to beat North Carolina 8-4 on Sunday night to force game seven. LSU and North Carolina will face off in the Regional Championship game today at 5 pm on ESPN+.

🔼 He’s The Best. Women’s golf coach Garrett Runion was named WGCA Central Region Coach of the Year! The Tigers finished No. 3 in the final Scoreboard by Clippd rankings. They won three times this season, including a NCAA Bryan Regional win.

🔼  Go The Distance. LSU signed middle-distance runner Emedy Ruto to the men’s track & field and cross country teams! He comes to LSU with a personal-best time of 3:36.91 in the 1500m, a faster time than LSU’s current record that was set 29 years ago.

🔼  Write This Down. LSU football’s home-opener will be under the lights at Tiger Stadium! The Tigers will host Nicholls week two at 6:30 pm on ESPN+/SEC Network+. They’ll travel to South Carolina the next week for an 11 am matchup.
