Louisiana Ragin' Cajun baseball won their 6th consecutive Sun Belt Conference series over the weekend, taking two of three from Appalachian State on the road.
Louisiana head baseball coach Matt Deggs joined me on my show this morning, detailing the what it's like to lose the last game of a series rather than the first or middle, the difficulty level of a player adjusting to the game once it adjusts to the players with a detailed scouting report, the play of Julian Brock, the key to winning the Sun Belt tournament, RPI, and much more.
