WHAT TO WATCH FOR: After making the best start of his career last week against Eastern Kentucky, Marceaux will face a team that beat Missouri 4-2 on Friday afternoon. Baylor right fielder Mack Mueller hit two home runs. Marceaux has shown talent during his career, but he needs to consistently give LSU quality starts. If Marceaux continues to pitch like he did last weekend, he will give LSU a chance to win every Saturday.
