By now, you know that LSU lost its first game of the season Tuesday, a 4-1, rain-shortened defeat to Louisiana-Lafayette.The Tigers struggled to find their hitting rhythm, failed at the plate in key opportunities and allowed the leadoff guy on base far too many times.They had a freshman, Kramer Robertson, make some rookie mistakes, too.
