How to watch as No. 1 LSU baseball travels to face Southeastern Louisiana in Tuesday night battle

LSU is coming off back-to-back sweeps in conference play, but coach Jay Johnson’s team will be looking to end a streak it’s less proud of on Tuesday night.

The Tigers baseball team has dropped back-to-back midweek contests against Louisiana and Nicholls, and now they’ll look to get back in the non-conference win column for the first time in three weeks.

To do so, LSU (35-8) will make the trip to Hammond, Louisiana, on Tuesday night for a midweek contest against Southeastern Louisiana. The Lions enter this one with a losing record at 19-21, and they sit at just 4-11 in Southland play.

SELA has had some success against the SEC this season, however, taking two out of three games in a weekend series at Auburn earlier this season. LSU will hope to avoid a similar result on the road on Tuesday night.

Here’s everything you need to know as LSU looks to end a two-game midweek losing streak.

Update: Due to technical difficulties, the game will not be streamed via ESPN+. You can still listen to the game on the radio.

Quoting Jay Johnson

“Southeastern is always one of the best base running teams in the country. They have a good system, and they steal a million bases. They have some veteran players, and I’ve never been there, but their stadium looks like a cool venue to play in. We’re just going to focus on improving as a team, competing every day. I’m really proud of our players, and we’re very grateful for the support of our fans and the energy they bring to the ball park.”

Series History

LSU dominates the all-time series over the Lions with a 74-18 record with the first contest coming back in 1937. The Tigers have taken 28 of the last 30 against Southeastern, and they’ve lost just four games in the series since 1990. LSU won the previous matchup 17-3 last season.

Injury Report

LSU is getting back closer to full health, but it’s still missing a couple of guys, namely one of its top bullpen arms in Garrett Edwards. It’s been a while since we’ve gotten an update from Johnson regarding his status.
