Big-time series win

For all of the criticism of LSU's hitting, the Tigers went into Georgia -- either a No. 1 or a top-10 team according to the poll of your preference -- and put up 23 runs. That's nearly eight a game and nearly eight a game should win you the majority of your games.

It did this weekend as LSU went on the road and won two of three from the Bulldogs.

And it was a good thing, too, for LSU fans. The Tigers' vaunted pitching staff had its own share of challenges with the Bulldogs allowing 19 runs in the series.

But this is what good teams do. Last week, the pitching carried the Tigers to two wins in three games against Ole Miss. This weekend, the hitters did the job.

Sure, you wonder what this team would be like if it both hit and pitched at the same time. But that's a moot point.

All of these games are just positioning for what matters in college baseball -- May and June.
