The ULM Warhawks jumped out to a 7-1 lead but the bats went cold allowing the Red Wolves to claw their way back into the game and eventually tying it at 7 forcing extra innings. After losing in 11 innings the night before, Matt Collins made sure that would not happen today.
Collins stepped to the plate with 2 outs in the bottom of the 10th and Ben Soignier on first base (walk). Matt got a 2-0 fastball and he delivered the big blow over the right center field fence and was then mobbed at home plate by his teammates as they celebrated a much needed victory.
ULM starter Jordy Poche got a no decision after going 6 innings allowing 6 hits and 5 runs. Poche walked 3 and struck out 4.
Blake Jones came on the final two innings, did not allow a run, and picked up the victory.
ULM will conclude it's home stand tomorrow with a rare contest against Harvard at 3PM.
