In the first game of the day LSU-Eunice transfer Cody Boutte notched his career win in a Cajun uniform, allowing four hits over four innings and two earned runs.
The Cajun bats came alive early with A Jace Conrad double in the bottom of the first led to an RBI ground out from Michael Strentz and a Chase Compton double followed adding a second run.
Girouard led off the Cajuns half of the second inning with a solo home run down the right field line upping the lead to 3-0.
Three consecutive singles by the Chippewas in the fourth inning had Boutte in his first – and only – jam of the day. He induced a sacrifice fly and an RBI groundout to minimize the damage and finished off his pitch-count limited appearance by striking out Randon Henika.
The Ragin' Cajuns would plate insurance runs on a strange play in the sixth inning that resulted in Chase Compton driving home two runs on a sacrifice fly ball to the warning track in left center field for a 5-2 lead.
But the story the rest of the way was the relief pitching of Nick Zaunbrecher and Hicks which led to Boutte being victorious in his UL debut.
Pitching dominated the second game of the day as Austin Robichaux and CMU's Jordan Foley faced off on the mound. The two pitchers battled for five innings and allowing six hits between the two of them. CMU scored the lone run off four consecutive singles off of Robichaux in the third inning.
CMU's Foley held the UL to just three hits over six innings of work before Tyler Girouard singled through the left side, then scored when a shallow fly ball from Wilson landed in front of and then bounced past CMU left fielder Tom Lally resulting in an RBI triple which tied the contest.
Two UL errors in the ninth inning placed both Chippewas runners in scoring position and Logan Regnier hit a triple down the right field line to give CMU a 3-1 lead. Another run was added on a Jordan Adams RBI single, but Matt Hicks induced a double-play ball on the next at bat to end CMU inning.
Louisiana's first four hitters in the bottom of the ninth reached base before Dylan Butler delivered a RBI single to right center.
CMU replaced reliever Dylan Rheault with Sean Renzi after Butler's base hit. Renzi retired the first two hitters he faced before an infield single by Blake Trahan loaded the bases and kept the Cajuns comeback hopes alive.
Seth Harrison drew a walk to force home another run and slice the CMU lead to 4-3. On his third offering from Renzi, Leonards promptly delivered a single into left field that scored Butler and Trahan both of whom had broke off second and third base before Leonards made contact.
Leonards (three hits) and Wilson (two hits) had the Cajuns multiple-hit games. Robichaux settled for a no-decision, but looked every bit the form of his freshman season-ending finish by scattering four hits over five innings.
