LSU vs. New Orleans: season opener replay (Audio)


The LSU Tigers began their 2014 baseball season Friday night with a 2-0 win against New Orleans. All-American starting pitcher Aaron Nola picked up the win and Kurt McCune recorded the save as the Tigers held the Privateers to only four hits on the evening.

The Tigers didn’t need much on offense with Nola on the mound as he went six innings, surrendering only four hits with six strikeouts.

“It wasn’t really what I expected, to be honest,” said Nola, who did hit three batters Friday. “My fastball felt good, but the inside of the plate wasn’t where I want it to be. Everything else was pretty good, but I’m still just trying to get a better feel on my curveball and changeup.”

Alex Bregman and designated hitter Kade Scivicque had the two RBIs for the Tigers.
