Notes on the Tigers

LSU extended its season-opening win streak to 11 games last week as the Tigers posted two wins over Pepperdine and two wins over Brown in Alex Box Stadium.


The Tigers are 11-0 for the first time since 1997, when LSU won its first 19 games of the season en route to the school’s fourth national championship.


LSU has won 17 straight home games dating back to last season.


The Tigers have won 26 of their last 27 games over the past two seasons, and LSU has a 93-20 mark since April 22, 2008.


Sophomore right-hander Joey Bourgeois pitched brilliantly Saturday in a win over Pepperdine, outdueling Waves ace Matt Bywater. Bourgeois fired seven shutout innings, allowing just one hit with two walks and three strikeouts.


Pepperdine’s only hit against Bourgeois was an infield single by centerfielder Brian Humphries. Bourgeois fired 97 pitches in the win as he improved his record to 2-0 and lowered his ERA to 2.08 on the season.


Junior outfielder Leon Landry hit .538 (7-for-13) in the Tigers’ four victories last week with two triples, four RBI, five runs and a .588 on-base percentage.


Landry became the 11th player in LSU history to hit two triples in a single game Sunday when he collected a pair of three-baggers versus Brown. He is batting .368 on the season with two doubles, two triples, 11 runs, 10 RBI and six stolen bases.


Junior catcher Micah Gibbs enjoyed another excellent weekend at the plate, batting .538 (7-for-13) in four games with one double, five RBI and three runs.


Sophomore Tyler Hanover hit .438 (7-for-16) in LSU’s four victories with one double, one homer, three RBI and five runs.


Sophomore right-hander Matty Ott earned his fifth save of the season Saturday versus Pepperdine, increasing his career total to 21.


Ott is in second place on the all-time LSU saves list, trailing only Rick Greene, who had 29 saves for the Tigers from 1990-92.


LSU is 4-0 in one-run games this season.


The Tigers were 12-3 in one-run games in 2009.
