LSU-Alcorn State starting lineups

Good evening from Alex Box Stadium.

Scott Rabalais here, pinch hitting for our Les East who has the night off.

I’ll be taking you through tonight’s non-conference game between No. 3-ranked LSU (25-7) and the Alcorn State Braves (7-25).

Here are tonight’s starting lineups:

ALCORN STATE (7-25)

1. CF Alvin Jackson (.236)

2. LF Joshua Powell (.252)

3. 1B Rodney Warren (.304)

4. RF Eduardo Gonzales (.344)

5. DH Jann Butler (.280)

6. SS Angel Rosa (.326)

7. 3B Antolin Morales (.148)

8. 2B Christian Hickman (.365)

9. C Gabriel Lebron (.222)

Starting pitcher – RH Cedric Pomerlee (0-3, 6.75 ERA)

LSU FIGHTING TIGERS (25-7)

1. 2B JaCoby Jones (.285)

2. 3B Tyler Hanover (.295)

3. RF Mason Katz (.351)

4. SS Austin Nola (.308)

5. C Ty Ross (.326)

6. 1B Tyler Moore (.333)

7. DH Jordy Snickeris (.412)

8. LF Jared Foster (.239)

9. CF Arby Fields (.192)

Starting pitcher – RH Joe Broussard (3-0, 4.08 ERA)

LSU coach Paul Mainieri said before the game he was going to start Snickeris at catcher, but instead went with Ross. Ross will also catch Wednesday against Southern Miss at Zephyr Field. Mainieri is hoping to save his bullpen tonight and go with as few pitchers as possible, preferably Broussard and Cody Glenn.
