On a cold and nasty day for baseball the home team Warhawks battled back from a 3-1 deficit and won game two over the Grambling Tigers 9-5.
ULM starter Daniel McHenry got off to a rough start giving up two runs in the first inning to the Tigers. McDaniel would settle down and go 4 innings, giving up 6 hits, three runs. Henry walked no one an struck out 3.
Trailing 3-1 going into the bottom of the 4th, ULM would get a big shot in the arm from catcher Casey Auttonberry. Third baseman Tom O'Gorman reached on an error setting the stage for Auttonberry. Casey sent a big fly over the right field wall to tie the score at 3. ULM would get more run in the inning when Boomer Blanchard doubled scoring Jon Prevost who was hit by a pitch one batter earlier.
In the top of the 5th Grambling would pick up an unearned run but ULM would strike right back for 3 more runs in the bottom half and take a 7-4 lead. GSU would put one more run on the board while ULM would post 2 more runs and win this one 9-5.
The ULM bullpen was again outstanding throwing the final 5 innings allowing just 4 hits and one earned run. Josh Miller picked up the win for the Warhawks going 3 innings allowing just 2 hits and one run. Miller did not walk a batter and struck out six. As a team ULM struck out 13 Tigers and only walked one.
At the plate ULM was lead by designated hitter Jordy Poche's three hits and 2 RBI's. Kelvin York, Boomer Blanchard, and Matt Collins both had 2 hits while Casey Auttonberry provided the power with a 2 run homer.
