The Cajuns starting pitching produced there quality starts this weekend, as Cody Boutte pitched his gem Sunday afternoon holding the Warhawks to just four hits until back-to-back singles with one out in the ninth inning.

Blake Trahan homered in the third inning to pull the Cajuns (16-3, 3-0 Sun Belt) even with the Warhawks (8-12, 0-3 Sun Belt) at 1-1. Tyler Girouard singled home Caleb Adams with the go-ahead run later in the inning and in the sixth inning added an insurance run with his second RBI single of the day.

Matt Hicks relieved Boutte after the consecutive singles by ULM with one out in the ninth. He induced three straight ground balls to collect his seventh save of the season.

After a fielding error helped the Warhawks load the bases, Hicks fielded a comebacker from pinch hitter Corben Green for a force out at home plate and on the next at bat fielded a grounder from Chase Compton at first base for the final out.

The Ragin’ Cajuns host Southern in a 6 p.m., midweek game on Tuesday, March 19 at “The Tigue” before spending the next two weekends on the road in SBC play with trips to Middle Tennessee (March 22-24) and WKU (March 29-31).
