Watch 2017 SEC Baseball Tournament Championship: LSU v Arkansas

HOOVER, Alabama, Sporting Alert — LSU has been in spanking for at the 2017 SEC Baseball Tournament. Arkansas has been equally as impressive.

The pair will now go head-to-head as they meet in the championship game of the tournament at Hoover Metropolitan Stadium in Alabama on Sunday.

Live coverage of the game will be broadcast nationally on ESPN2, starting at 3:00 pm ET with WatchESPN/ESPN3 providing the live online streaming.

The second-seeded Tigers breezed through the opening rounds untouched and secured a place in today’s title contest with a commanding 11-0 victory over the No. 11-seeded South Carolina on Saturday.

“Big win for the Tigers today,” said LSU coach Paul Mainieri. “It gets us to the championship game, which we’re excited and fired up about.

“I think the game went as well as we had hoped for. South Carolina was playing their fifth game in five days, but I still credit our hitters; they went out there and did the job.”

The fourth-seeded Razorbacks were also in tail-whipping fashion — trashing top-seeded Florida 16-0 in their SEC Tournament semifinal game.

LSU enters Sunday’s game seeking to win its 12th SEC Tournament crown and the players are both excited and confident about playing and winning the championship this year.
