Former LSU and MLB pitcher Louis Coleman joins Matt to recap LSU’s series win over Indiana. What can be realistically be taken from the opening weekend?
“I think there is somethings you can pull, but for the most part it’s getting the feet wet,” Coleman said. “There’s a lot of jitters so it’s really about just getting going.”
Cole Henry was dominant on Friday night, but saw his pitch count balloon to 71 through 4 innings. Is that something that can become a consistent problem with a strikeout pitcher?
“You always want a guy to try and get outs in three pitches or less so they can go deep in the ballgame,” Coleman said. “You want a guy on the mound who can strike guys out because when it’s 1st and 3rd and nobody out you need a punchout.”
Coleman talks his unique role in 2009 when he would close on Fridays and start on Sunday. Is this a role that still has a place in the college game?
