After a disappointing Friday contest in which the ULM Warhawks committed six errors and lost 12-10, they bounced back on Saturday and Sunday to take the 3 games series 2 games to 1 over the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
Early on todays game had all the makeup of a pitchers duel that would be decided in the later innings. That would not be case as the Warhawks opened up a close 4-2 ball game and put the Cajuns (17-17, 8-10 SUN BELT) away in the eight and ninth innings scoring 10 runs for the 14-4 win.
ULM (22-12, 14-4 SUN BELT) would pound Cajun pitching for 14 runs on 19 hits and hit three more home runs. Josh Lett (3.30 ERA) picked up his sixth win of the season against one loss. The southpaw went 5 2/3 scattering seven hits and giving up 2 runs. Short stop Ben Soignier picked up his third save of the season going the final 3 1/3 innings.
