WHAT TO WATCH FOR: Hess will make his second start. His first did not go well. Hess gave up five runs (four earned) in less than four innings, but he said he made a mechanical adjustment with his leg kick. Also, freshman Cade Beloso will start at first base as LSU searches for an everyday first baseman.
