LSU sophomore first baseman/outfielder Mason Katz (Dans 2010) enjoyed a remarkable weekend series versus Kentucky, batting .727 (8-for-11) in three games with five doubles, one homer, six RBI and six runs scored.

Mason’s pinch-hit, two-RBI single in the bottom of the eighth inning in Game 1 on Thursday highlighted an eight-run LSU rally as the Tigers rebounded from a 5-1 deficit and posted a 9-5 victory ... he started a first base in Game 2, going 4-for-5 at the plate with a school record-tying three doubles, two RBI and three runs scored ... in Game 3, he was 3-for-5 with two doubles, one homer, two RBI and two runs.

In four consecutive at-bats from the seventh inning of Game 2 through the third inning of Game 3, Katz collected three doubles and a home run ... LSU junior centerfielder Mikie Mahtook (Dans 2009) hit .429 (6-for-14) last week with two doubles, one homer, five RBI, five runs and four stolen bases.
