Spartans Fall Twice At LSU, Beat WCU

Michigan State's had a trio of midweek games. MSU was in Baton Rouge to take on Louisiana State. LSU took game one, 5-3. Former Michigan high school standout D.J. LeMahieu had two hits and three RBI to lead the Tigers. Freshman Tyler Newsome had a three hit game for MSU.

The Tigers prevailed in the series finale, 12-1. MSU was held to just five hits yesterday.

Michigan State rebounded from the pair of losses in Cajun Country to beat Western Carolina today, 5-3. Justin Potes was 3 for 4 with a run scored and a RBI. Jonathon Roof and Kyle Day each had a pair of hits for MSU. Peter Wolff's two innings of relief work was good enough to garner the win. Nolan Moody picked up his first save of 2008.

The Spartans also released interviews with A.J. Dunn and Kyle Day on the day of the first encounter with Louisiana State.
