Fourth-ranked LSU (39-13) plays its final home game of the 2012 regular season at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday when the Tigers play host to Nicholls State in Alex Box Stadium.

The game will be carried by the affiliates of the LSU Sports Radio Network, with Baton Rouge affiliate WDGL 98.1 FM serving as the flagship station. Live video, audio and stats of the game may be accessed in the Geaux Zone at www.LSUsports.net.

LSU has clinched at least a tie for the 2012 SEC Western Division title, marking the Tigers’ third division crown in the past five seasons under coach Paul Mainieri. Mainieri also directed LSU to division championships in 2008 and 2009. LSU has won 16 Western Division titles in its history, including five in the past 10 seasons.

LSU enters the final regular-season weekend at South Carolina just one game behind Kentucky and a half-game behind South Carolina in the overall SEC standings. LSU is seeking the 15th overall league championship in school history and its second in the past four seasons. The Tigers have already clinched at least a #2 seed in next week’s SEC Tournament as the Western Division champion.

“This is obviously a very big week for us, beginning with Nicholls State Tuesday night,” Mainieri said. “We had a tough series with Vanderbilt over the weekend, but we have the opportunity to rebound right away. Nicholls beat us here just three years ago, and we have great respect for their program. We’ll have to be ready to play at our best, and then we’ll focus on the final SEC series this weekend.”

Mainieri said that sophomore right-hander Kurt McCune (2-4, 4.21 ERA) will start Tuesday’s game on the mound for LSU. The outing will mark McCune’s first start since April 5, when he defeated Florida in Gainesville.

Nicholls State coach Seth Thibodaux will counter with senior left-hander Mike Wisecarver (1-6, 4.61 ERA).

LSU junior leftfielder Raph Rhymes continues to lead the nation in batting average, hitting .478 (87-for-182) on the year with 11 doubles, three homers and 47 RBI. Rhymes is hitting .600 (39-for-65) this season with runners in scoring position, and he’s batting .469 (45-for-96) in SEC games.

Junior rightfielder Mason Katz is hitting .330 with team-highs of 14 doubles and nine homers, and he has collected 39 RBI.

Senior third baseman Tyler Hanover has 260 career hits and needs nine more to move into the Top 10 in LSU annals. Hanover also has 32 sacrifice bunts in his career, just one behind Michael Hollander (2005-08) on the LSU career list.

Senior shortstop Austin Nola has 47 career doubles and needs three more to move into the Top 10 of the LSU lifetime doubles list.

Nicholls State is hitting .278 as a team with 21 homers and 98 stolen bases in 133 attempts. The Colonels are led at the plate by senior first baseman/outfielder Jeremy Hill, who is hitting .383 with seven doubles, one triple, four homers and 39 RBI.

Sophomore infielder Philip Lyons is batting .344 with five doubles, two triples, one homer and 35 RBI. Senior first baseman Blake Bergeron has a team-high seven homers and has driven in 33 runs.

LSU leads the overall series with Nicholls State, 47-22, including two victories over the Colonels last season. LSU has won 20 of the last 21 meetings with Nicholls State – the Colonels’ only win in that span was a 3-1 victory over the Tigers on April 15, 2009 in Alex Box Stadium.
