ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia baseball coach David Perno hinted that lineup changes might be ahead after the Bulldogs went 1-for-15 with runners in scoring position in Tuesday’s 4-3 loss to Georgia Tech.

Perno announced after Wednesday’s practice that he will in fact shuffle the lineup in this weekend’s series at No. 6 LSU (33-9, 12-6 SEC) -- with the biggest change being freshman slugger Hunter Cole’s return to competition.

Cole, who leads the Bulldogs (24-18, 8-10) with six home runs and is batting .370 in SEC play, missed the last six games with a strained muscle in his right side. Perno said Cole is not pain-free, but the injury has healed to the point that he would not risk further injury by playing.
