FORMER DAN HITS FOR CYCLE
BATON ROUGE, La. - No one was happier for 2009 Danville Dan Austin Nola when he hit for the cycle last summer, than Dans and LSU teammate Mikie Mahtook. Last night, the tables turned. It was Mikie who hit for the cycle and Austin who cheered him on. The third-ranked Tigers pounded 20 hits as LSU defeated Alcorn State, 17-5, Tuesday night in Alex Box Stadium.
Nola was the first Dan to hit for the cycle and Mahtook became the first Tiger to do so since Aaron Hill accomplished the feat on April 5, 2003 against South Carolina. Mahtook went 4-for-4 with five runs scored as he doubled in the first inning, singled in the second, ripped a triple off the wall in the fifth and blasted a two-run dinger in the sixth.
Way to go Mikie!
