LSU third baseman Conner Hale may miss Wednesday's game against Northwestern State with a sore elbow.
Hale took a fastball off his left arm Tuesday against New Orleans. He stayed on to run the bases but came out of the game between innings.
LSU coach Paul Mainieri said X-rays on Hale's elbow came back negative, but the senior infielder was still in significant pain after the game.
"There’s no break. He’s just really sore," Mainieri said. "He’ll be day-to-day tomorrow. Hopefully it’ll loosen up, but it was hurting pretty bad...I’m really glad nothing’s broken, but it’s still sore. So it’s going to have to feel a lot better tomorrow for him to be able to play."
Danny Zardon replaced Hale to start the fourth inning. Hale grounded out in his only other at-bat before the hit-by-pitch.
Hale has started all but one game this season for LSU, beginning the year as the Tigers' first baseman before moving to the opposite side of the infield last month. He's hitting .326 with 30 RBI, 4 home runs and 27 runs scored, hitting mostly out of the cleanup spot.
