Tied at 15-15 in SEC play this season, LSU and Mississippi State begin the postseason on Tuesday with a single-elimination matchup in the SEC Tournament. LSU and Mississippi State played a three-game series in late March in Baton Rouge, with the Tigers winning two out of three games.
LSU will send sophomore left-hander Nick Bush to the mound to start. Bush has made three starts in 2018, two in SEC play. In those two SEC starts, Bush has allowed 1 earned run in 11 innings pitched. Mississippi State will counter with left-handed ace Konnor Pilkington, a strikeout pitcher projected by some to be an early-round MLB draft pick who LSU touched up for 5 runs in 6.2 innings earlier this season.
