Both James and I here at Cliff Hagan Stadium today. It's cold. First pitch in about 25 minutes. Anthony Davis also throwing ceremonial first pitch.

And remember, it can't be any worse than John Wall's first pitch at the Nationals' game:
John Wall bounces the first pitch before Nationals-Orioles game June 17, 2011
Anthony Davis getting a huge ovation as he comes out for the first pitch
Davis lobs it but gets it there. No bouncing this one.
Cats wearing black jerseys today; LSU yellow.
LSU has some great names on its roster: Arby Fields, Raph Rhymes, Jordy Snikeris, Beau Didier, Nick Rumbelow, Brent Bonvillain and the ultimate Louisiana names: Austin and Aaron Nola
Clean top of the 1st for Corey Littrell
Both pitchers looked awfully good in the first inning; 6 up, 6 down
LSU's Raph Rhymes (who hits .485) just murdered his 2nd homer of the year to lead off the 2nd inning
That was also the first home run of the season allowed by Littrell. It wasn't a cheapy either.
Wild play to end top of the 2nd; Littrell throws ball in dirt that kicks out to the right of the front of the plate. Luke Maile jumps out, retrieves it and dives back toward plate to tag out Austin Nola, who was trying to score from third. LSU 1, UK 0; B-2nd
LSU's Aaron Nola appears to have a frisbee slider/curve/slurve that UK just isn't seeing through first 2 innings
Littrell appears to be settling down a little bit after being amped up early; 1-0 LSU, B-3rd
AJ Reed just hit a ball to Commonwealth Stadium ….. and it was about 5 feet foul. Next pitch Reed smokes a double the opposite way; 2 runs score; UK 2, LSU 1; B-3rd
Big Hit AJ Reed. Cats 2-1
Luke Maile follows Reed's 2-run double up with a sinking liner to CF to score Reed; 3-1 UK
After Nola got first 2 outs, UK has gone Cousino single, McCarthy double, Reed 2-run double, Maile RBI single
Through 3, UK leads 3-1
Another huge game today. Keep battling, Cats, and win this ballgame.
UK finds itself in a jam right after taking the lead; back to back singles, wild pitch puts runners on 2nd/3rd; Rhymes RBI single; 3-2 UK, 0 outs in T-4th. Henderson out to check on Littrell.

Rhymes is now hitting .493 on the year (68-138). He has struck out just 7 times.
UK turns a 6-4-3 double play, but runner scores from 3rd; All knotted up at 3 now.
UK limits the damage after three straight hits to start the T-4th, gets double play and pop up to 1st to end inning; UK 3, LSU 3; B-4th
LSU gets 2 in the 4th and ties up the game 3-3.
THis is becoming entertaining; Zac Zellers hits first pitch of B-4th out the left-center for 5th HR of the year; 4-3 UK
