Head Baseball Coach Tony Robichaux answers from the media at the UL Media Luncheon Monday!
Cajuns Edge Top Ranked LSU
"We played well for the length of time that we had to play," head coach Tony Robichaux said. "It's a shame that two good teams didn't get a chance to play it out, but we will take it. We made plays when we needed to, especially with the length of the game in jeopardy."
Junior pitcher Greg Milhorn earned his second win of the season holding the Tigers to one run on four hits in five innings.
LSU starter Cody Glenn was tabbed with the loss after surrendering three runs on five hits in four innings of work to drop to 1-1 on the year.
Offensively, the Louisiana outhit the Tigers 6-4 in the contest. Centerfielder Seth Harrison had the only extra base hit of the game for the Ragin' Cajuns with his RBI triple in the third inning.
The Cajuns broke into the scoring column in the top of the third on a triple to center by Harrison scoring Greg Davis from first. In the next at bat, shortstop Blake Trahan brought Harrison home on a sac fly to left to make the score 2-0 Cajuns.
In the bottom half of the third, Trahan made a great diving stop on a ball hit deep in the hole by Mark Laird and cut down Kramer Robertson at the plate to end the inning.
Louisiana added a run in the top of the fourth when catcher Mike Strentz came in to score on single to third by second baseman Jace Conrad. Strentz led off the inning with a single and then moved to third after a sac bunt by Ryan Leornards and a fly by to right by Evan Powell.
The Tigers cut the advantage to 3-1 in the bottom of the fifth. After a leadoff triple down the right field line by Andrew Stevenson, Tyler Moore drove a sac fly to left to score Stevenson.
The Cajuns made it 4-1 in the top of the sixth when Tyler Girouard brought home Ryan Wilson from third on a ball hit to second.
With two runners on and only one out in the top of the sixth, the skies opened up and forced the completion of the game.
Louisiana returns to action on Friday at 6 p.m. in the first of three games against Alabama at M.L. "Tigue" Moore Field. Season tickets are still available for baseball and can be purchased on RaginCajuns.com or at the Cajundome box office. For more information call (337) 265-2357.
