Weekend wrap

Another weekend of college baseball is behind us, putting the teams about halfway home in terms of the regular season.

Here's what we learned this weekend.

We learned Brian Rike at Louisiana Tech may no longer be a candidate for any under the radar mention. On Sunday, the quiet junior outfielder slugged a pair of home runs, including a three-run tiebreaking shot in the eighth that lifted Tech to an 8-6 win over Fresno State and to .500 in the Western Athletic Conference.

We learned Northwestern State continues to be Jekyll and Hyde. Mainly Jekyll on Fridays when former Airline High standout Jimmy Heard is on the mound and Hyde when anyone else is.

We learned Tulane and Louisiana-Lafayette will probably carry the flag for the state this year, but Southeastern Louisiana is proving Jay Artigues is a pretty good coach as well.

Finally, we learned LSU isn't the WORST team in the SEC. Right now, that distinction belongs to the Auburn Tigers, who are 0-6 in the conference. Yeesh. Those hyped freshmen that decided to yell War Eagle last season better get going or AU could be looking for another head coach soon.
