Tigers look to continue tear against Tide 

April, 13, 2012
BATON ROUGE -- With a road trip to No. 2 Kentucky looming, this weekend's series against Alabama is one LSU would be wise to win.

The No. 7 Tigers (27-7, 8-4) host Alabama this weekend after taking an impressive five of six games from SEC heavyweights Florida and Arkansas. If you simply look at the SEC standings, it's easy to assume the Crimson Tide (13-20, 4-8) will be an easy out for an LSU team that has won 9 of its last 10 games.

The Tide's team batting average of .255 ranks last in the SEC, as does its team ERA of 4.96. The Tigers sit fourth in the league in both categories, with a team average of .302 and a 3.10 team ERA.
