BATON ROUGE -- LSU's Saturday starter Ryan Eades has been on the downswing recently, with two disappointing outings in a row heading into this weekend's series against South Carolina at Alex Box Stadium in Baton Rouge. (LSU set a record for that facility on Saturday night with an announced attendance of 12,727, which included standing-room only fans lined up two and three deep on the concourse.)

Eades may have halted his slide a little bit, bouncing back from a rough first inning to throw more strikes and compete more for the remainder of his seven-inning outing.
