Cajuns Ride The Arm Of Marze For Win

Sophomore Dayton Marze tossed the final six innings in relief and held UNO to two runs and four hits as the Cajuns took game three of the series 5-4, and the sweep.

Sophomore Dayton Marze, who entered in relief of starter Michael Cook in the third inning, finished off the longest outing of his career by working around a two-out base hit and getting UNO senior Nick Schwaner to pop out to shortstop for the final out in the final Sun Belt contest at Maestri Field.

Louisiana (31-16, 16-8 Sun Belt) will travel to Baton Rouge on Tuesday for a 6 p.m., contest with Southern University and then return to "The Tigue" to host Western Kentucky (32-18, 13-11 Sun Belt) in another pivotal Sun Belt series Friday-Sunday, May 14-16.

Trailing 4-3 entering the ninth, Matt Goulas was hit by a pitch from UNO starter John Pivach and Jordan Poirrier followed with a walk. Kyle Bostick laid down a sacrifice bunt on a 0-2 count to move pinch runner Brian Bowman and Poirrier to second and third.

After an intentional walk to Tyler Frederick loaded the bases, Lance Marvel lofted a deep fly ball to center for a sacrifice fly which scored Bowman with the tying run.

Alex Fuselier - who finished the series with eight hits - stepped up with two outs and delivered the game-winning hit through the right side of the infield which scored Poirrier for a 5-4 lead.

Fuselier ended the day 2-for-5 with a team-high two RBI. The St. Martinville native went 8-for-13 with seven RBI in the series.

Louisiana swept UNO for the sixth time in the past eight seasons. Recommended Stories
