Mainieri to stick with Forrest

Paul Mainieri likes what he has seen out of Haughton High product T.J. Forrest and he knows where Forrest will be for the forseeable future.

The LSU coach has penciled the freshman right-hander in as his Sunday starter against South Carolina in the opening SEC series for both teams. This should be interesting.

South Carolina ALWAYS hits. The Gamecocks, when they make a run to the College World Series, do it with offense. Couple that with a freshman making his first SEC appearance at venerable Sarge Frye Stadium and it makes for an interesting scenario.

Forrest doesn't appear to be a typical freshman, but going against the Gamecocks on the road isn't exactly pitching at Fair Grounds Field or at home against Southern Miss.

However, Sunday's game goes, we'll find out a lot about Forrest's makeup and his pitching ability in general.
