Louisiana Ragin' Cajun baseball (20-15, 9-6) is coming off a series win against ULM, where they took games one and three, but fell in the ninth inning of game two.
Head coach Matt Deggs joined me on my show this morning, opening up about the series against the Warhawks, the disappointment of how game two ended, the bounce back in game three, the journey and play of Trey LaFleur, Tuesday night's matchup at LSU, and much more.
Plus, a few off baseball topics on how he spent Easter and the preferred cut of steak.

Next up is a trip to Baton Rouge on Tuesday night for a matchup against LSU (23-12) in the Wally Pontiff Jr. Classic.
First pitch is scheduled for 6:30, with pregame beginning at 6:00 on ESPN Lafayette (103.3 FM, 1420 AM), ESPNLafayette.com, and the ESPN Lafayette App.
