Robichaux: Lee to Start Game One of Regional
If you listened to Louisiana head coach Tony Robichaux's radio program Tuesday night, you got a hint of what the coaching staff was planning to do in the Ragin' Cajuns' opening game of the NCAA Lafayette Regional.
"We're a day behind in scouting reports because of Memorial Day so we're just now getting the info," Robichaux said. "Arizona has a lot of left handed bats and they run a lot. Sam Houston is really aggressive at the plate, so you might want a left hander going against them. Princeton is mostly right handed and they don't run a bunch,"
Lee (7-1, 3.18) got credit for his seventh win of the season Friday in the Cajuns' 4-2 win over Texas State. The 6-5 right hander pitched seven innings, allowing five hits and two runs. Louisiana has won in 14 of Lee's 15 starts this season. Lee's only loss came on March 20th vs. Little Rock. Lee has seven quality starts on the season.
Gunner Leger (6-3, 2.08) will be the Cajuns' game two starter against either Arizona or Sam Houston State. Leger has been sparkling in his last four starts, allowing just one earned run in his last 21.2 innings pitched.
The Cajuns (41-19), winners of ten straight, face Princeton (24-19) at 7pm Friday night at M. L. "Tigue" Moore Field. Princeton qualified for the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2011 by beating Yale in a best-of-three championship series which ended on May 15th.
