New Orleans, Louisiana 2021-06-08 19:14:00 –
LSU coach Paul Mainieri said on Tuesday that repeated injuries to the hamstrings could put LSU center-fielder Giovanni Digiacomo on the bench at the NCAA Super Regional at Tennessee State University.
“The hamstrings are still annoying him,” said Mainieri after the team arrived at Alex Box Stadium after winning the NCAA Eugene Regional. “I think he’s out on the weekends.”
Digiacomo defeated Gonzaga 9-4 in the first LSU match on Sunday, but was replaced by Drew Bianco for two LSU wins against Oregon on Sunday night and Monday.
Dijacomo has missed almost half of the season, playing 31 of the Tigers’ 61 games and starting 29 games. Batting average .293, 2 home runs, 16 RBIs.
From pain, this LSU baseball team found resilience.
LSU is ESPN2 at 6 pm CDT on Saturday, ESPN2 or ESPNU at 11 am or 2 pm on Sunday, and ESPN2 or at 6 pm or 6 pm on Monday, as needed Play on ESPNU.
