Former LSU pitcher Alden Cartwright joins Matt to preview LSU-La Tech tonight at The Box. Coach Mainieri has said that he will pick one lineup tonight and stick with it for the week. How does Cartwright feel about this move?
“Absolutely, because guys have to get into some sort of rhythm,” Cartwright said. “I definitely think that’s a good play. Baseball is all about consistency. You have to get in that rhythm.”
Junior left hander Brandon Kaminer will start tonight. What has Cartwright seen from Kaminer early in the season?
“I haven’t seen much of him. From what I have seen he seems to be figuring it out,” Cartwright said. “If coach is putting him in this situation, he definitely believes in his stuff. This is a huge opportunity for him.”
Is there something to be said for Kaminer getting the ball over Eric Walker?
“This is a wake up call for Eric Walker. If he’s giving the ball to someone else, he wants someone to take advantage of the spot,” Cartwright said.
