Behind sophomore Cody Glenn’s left arm LSU was able to get a 2-0 win against Nicholls State Sunday afternoon.
Glenn, who threw seven innings on Tuesday against ULL, again threw seven innings and didn’t allow a run in both games. As a whole the Tigers’ starters haven’t allowed a single earned run this week in four games played.
“You imagine going out there and throwing zeroes, and fortunately I’ve done that so far,” Glenn said after the contest. In all three games Glenn has started this season he has yet to allow an earned run.
“Cody was outstanding. He made some great pitches when he really needed to,” Coach Mainieri said about the Houston native.
Glenn was not the only pitcher throwing well on Sunday. Nicholls State pitcher, Taylor Byrd, had a no-hitter going into the fifth inning. A Mason Katz grounder that slipped right past a diving Colonel third baseman broke up the no-no.
The Tigers were able to get both of their runs in the sixth inning. With one out third baseman, Christian Ibarra, reached first on an infield single.
Sean McMullen, who got the start today in rightfield, singled to center, and Ibarra was advanced to third on the hit.
Freshman Mark Laird blooped a ball over the shortstop that knocked in Ibarra from third.
Alex Bregman came through in a clutch situation, like it seems he has done all season, with an RBI single of his own. This brought the score to 2-0 in LSU’s favor.
Chris Cotton came into the ninth inning for the save opportunity. After allowing a leadoff single, Cotton was able to strike out the side and earn the save. The save gave Cotton three on the season.
Another note on the game is Mark Laird has now started two straight games in centerfield for the Tigers. His speed really helps him cover a lot of ground. Laird made two great catches on balls that Sciambra might not have been able to get to.
“It seems like he can cover the whole outfield by himself,” McMullen had to say about Laird.
Mainieri said he will play Laird a few more times in centerfield and make a decision before SEC play starts on who the Tigers centerfielder will be.

And now yall know my other handle haha
Weekend starting pitchers gave up 0 ER. Glenn hasn't given up an earned run in 3 starts!
Paul Mainieri = 328-135 ovr (70.8%), 119-89 SEC (57.2%), 21-10 NCAA (67.7%), 3 CWS App., 1 National Title
Would have to think Glenn would be SEC pitcher of the week
Glenn solidifying himself as a weekend starter is outstanding. Barring injury, he will be drafted in the first couple of rounds when eligible again.
Im really excited about the way the team is playing right now. Lets just keep it up and get a few other hitters playing well before SEC play starts in a couple weeks.
We just need the bats to come around and I think we are a top 3 team no doubt. We definitely have the pitching staff to compete with anyone in the country, but our offense needs to improve, especially with RISP. We seem to collect a decent amount of hits every game, but cannot get the timely hits to bring runs in. Only scoring 2 runs vs teams like Brown & Nichols is a little concerning when we know we will face much better pitching staffs in future SEC play.

Proud to support everything Louisiana
I think he is a draft eligible soph like Gausman was.
I think I remember reading that.
He was drafted coming out of high school. A big LHP who throws in the 90s is going to be drafted highly. Especially if he's a weekend SEC starter.
