  • On Deck: at University of New Orleans, 6:30 p.m. Tuesday
  • In The Hole: at South Carolina, 6:00 p.m. Thursday
  • Fraley’s Walkoff: His walk-up song is “I’m The Man.” He certainly was on Sunday afternoon. After senior third baseman Conner Hale led off the frame with a single up the middle, senior catcher Kade Scivicque stroked a single to center field. With two runners in scoring position and no outs, Fraley stepped to the plate looking to end it. He did just that, roping a game-winning RBI single to center field to give LSU the 6-5 win.
  • Chinea’s Dinger: How fast does a ball need to leave Alex Box Stadium? Approximately 104 mph. At least that’s what Chris Chinea’s sixth-inning solo home run indicated. The Tigers’ junior first baseman gave the home squad a 5-4 lead after the bullpen squandered LSU’s one-run lead in the top half of the frame.
  • Making It Hale: Conner Hale made sure to celebrate his Senior Day in grand fashion. With LSU trailing 3-0 in the bottom of the fourth inning, Hale stepped to the plate with junior shortstop Alex Bregman on third base. Hale proceeded to drop an RBI single into right-center field to make it a 3-1 contest. One inning later, he did it again, dropping a game-tying RBI single into center field to make it a 3-3 game.
  • Bain’s Day: It’s safe to say Austin Bain wants to be back in the weekend rotation. After senior southpaw Kyle Bouman only recorded one out in the top of the first inning, Bain took control on the mound. He retired the first six hitters he faced via the strikeout, and he finished the day after 5.1 innings pitched, allowing two hits and one earned run. He also allowed one earned run after Missouri sophomore shortstop Ryan Howard hit a solo home run in the top of the sixth inning.
  • Still Streaking: Five LSU batters extended their hitting streaks on Sunday afternoon: Alex Bregman (16), Chris Chinea (12), Chris Sciambra (11), Conner Hale (6) and Kade Scivicque (5).
  • Bad Bouman: Sunday certainly wasn’t the Senior Day left-hander Kyle Bouman was hoping for. Everything started well: the first Missouri batter of the contest popped out in foul territory. But it was followed by a walk, a single and a three-run home run by junior third baseman Josh Lester to give LSU an early deficit. That would be Bouman’s last batter of the afternoon.
  • Zardon’s Day: Danny Zardon might want to forget that Sunday ever happened. The sophomore second baseman went 0-for-2 at the plate, and even after reaching first base on a walk, he was picked off. Add on an error that resulted in two bases for Missouri int he top of the ninth, and it was overall a nightmarish afternoon for LSU’s new second baseman.
  • Struggles for Stallings: The Southeastern Conference has not been kind to LSU redshirt freshman closer Jesse Stallings. After coming in with one on and one out in the top of the ninth, Stallings allowed an RBI double to left field to tie the game at 5-5. It was the fourth blown save for Stallings against SEC competition.
