Cajuns, Tigers Clash Tonight in Pontiff Classic
The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns and the LSU Tigers will renew their rivalry tonight at Zephyr Field in Metairie in the annual Wally Pontiff, Jr. Baseball Classic. First pitch is scheduled for 7pm.
Both teams are coming off disappointing series losses. The Cajuns (12-8, 3-3 Sun Belt) dropped two of three games to Little Rock over the weekend, while the Tigers (14-5, 1-2 SEC) had to rally on Sunday to avoid being swept by Alabama.
Evan Guillory (1-2, 2.95 ERA) will get his fifth midweek start for the Cajuns, while LSU will counter with Cole McKay (0-0, 5.40), making his first start of the season.
LSU has won the last three meetings between the two teams, including an 8-6 win in the Pontiff Classic a year ago. LSU leads the all-time series 52-24.
