BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - No. 1 LSU will be back in action against Southern Wednesday evening at The Box.

It will be a big night for Eric Walker, who will make his first start for the Tigers since 2017.

Walker suffered a tear in the ulnar collateral ligament of his right elbow near the end of the season and underwent Tommy John surgery.

Before the season ending injury, Waker had an 8-2 record with a 3.48 ERA. He was named to the 2017 Freshman All-SEC and Freshman All-American teams.

First pitch is set for Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at The Box.
