Hate that. LSU's Garrett Edwards looks like he might've pulled something on that last pitch to Hornung. Was holding something as he exited the game with the trainer.
Griffin Herring will be the new LSU pitcher.

Edwards has been one of No. 1 LSU’s top arms out of the bullpen this season. He entered Friday’s doubleheader with a 0.81 ERA and 26-4 strikeout-to-walk ratio over 22.1 innings, with a 4-0 record in 9 appearances.
As Garrett Edwards trotted in from the @LSUbaseball pen, I heard Monte Lee holler to the dugout, “All right, it’s their best guy.” Yep, he good. Attacking at 95-96 with a vicious slider at 84-88 and advanced feel for a good changeup vs lefties and righties alike. Real pen weapon. pic.twitter.com/cox10HhltC

No one wants to see a pitcher leave a game with arm discomfort like Edwards did. Hopefully, the injury is not as bad as it looked.
No. 6 South Carolina currently leads LSU 7-3 in the top of the 7th inning. It’s the first game of a doubleheader that will wrap up the 3-game series. The Gamecocks took Game 1 13-5 Thursday.
