BELLEVUE, Neb. -- On the day before he pitched LSU to the SEC Tournament championship, Eric Walker sat in a Hoover, Ala., hotel room and played the video over and over again.
On the screen was his outing from two weeks earlier, when the freshman right-hander took a no-hitter until two outs in the eighth inning against Auburn. He wanted to see what he did right that day.
"I was doing some different things with my windup," he said. "I kind of got back to basics."
That's when Walker says he's at his best.
Walker will pitch Monday against Oregon State (55-4) in a College World Series game with the confidence of knowing he can pitch before large crowds and in pressure situations.
