LSU was all set to enter Game 2 against the Alabama Crimson Tide fully loaded coming off of a win in Game 1.

But when the lineup came out, it caused concern among Tigers fans as star third baseman Jacob Berry was nowhere to be seen. According to a report from The Advocate’s Leah Hannah, Berry broke a finger in his right hand and will be unable to bat left-handed, meaning he will be out indefinitely.

Berry is one of the best players on the team and he is ranked as the No. 1 college player according to MLB.com.

With only three SEC series left (‘Bama, Ole Miss and Vandy), the Tigers are looking to improve their SEC and national seeding. Berry is a guy you need in that stretch.

The longevity of his injury is unknown, but this is awful news for a team that is looking to go on a winning streak. Jack Merrifield will play third base for the time being. Game 2 against Alabama will start at 7:30 p.m. CT.
