WHAT TO WATCH FOR: Coach Paul Mainieri hinted at some lineup changes Tuesday night, including the return of center fielder Giovanni DiGiacomo. The junior hasn’t played much this season because of a hamstring strain, leaving the middle of the outfield as a revolving door. Don’t expect him to salvage LSU’s season — Mainieri worried about his offensive consistency this preseason and DiGiacomo hasn’t faced much live pitching recently — but if he can stay healthy, DiGiacomo may be able to settle the position because of his defensive range and experience.
