Getting hot at the right time

Two weeks ago, LSU, Tulane and Northwestern State all were left for dead in their conference baseball races.

Look at them now.

LSU swept Auburn on the road and pulled to within a half-game of eighth place in the SEC. Tulane got another sweep at home and is pressuring the top three in Conference USA. And the Demons just swept Southland Conference-leading Lamar over the weekend to vault to two games over .500 in the SLC.

Sure, there still are questions. Can LSU and Tulane earn at-large NCAA Tournament bids? Can the Demons stay hot and make a run at the SLC tourney title?

We'll see in the next three weeks, but one things for sure: This past weekend was like old times for college baseball in Louisiana.
