We’re getting down to the nitty-gritty — and I don’t mean the dirt band —of the 2022 baseball season.

The LSU Tigers are currently 30-14 overall and 12-9 in SEC play with only three conference series (at Alabama, home vs. Ole Miss and at Vanderbilt) and two mid-week games (vs. Southeastern Louisiana and Northwestern State) left in the regular season.

D1Baseball recently released its updated postseason projections and, as of now, LSU would be hosting a regional as the No. 15 overall seed. The three other teams that are projected in the region just happen to be teams that LSU is very familiar with.

It has played one game each against Texas, Louisiana Tech, and McNeese State, going 1-3 in that stretch. The Tigers played the Longhorns in the Shriners College Classic back in March and lost 6-1 at Minute Maid Park in Houston.

Four days after that game, LSU played McNeese State and beat the Cowboys 6-3. It has played Louisiana Tech twice this season, losing the first game 11-6 in Ruston before the Bulldogs came to Baton Rouge and pulled off a comeback victory in 12 innings. The Tigers had a 6-4 lead entering the top of the ninth inning but couldn’t close the game out.

All of those games were played earlier in the season. A lot has changed since then, and a lot can still change between now and regionals. We will see what happens between now and then, and LSU will hope it can improve its standing even more in that span.

The Tigers start their three-game series with the Crimson Tide this Friday night at 6 p.m. CT.
