With the win, Arkansas State (4-6, 2-1) captured the Sun Belt Conference series, 2-1.
The game went into extra innings after the Ragin' Cajuns scored on a passed ball in the eighth to knot the score at 2-2, and neither team could manage a run in the ninth.
Travis Whipple picked up two of Louisiana's five hits in the 10-inning affair, accounting for one run himself in three at bats. Others reaching on hits included Scott Hawkins (1-3), Chad Keefer (1-4) and Greg Fontenot (1-5). No one registered any RBIs, with one run coming on an error and the other following a wild pitch.
Randall Bulliard (0-2) took the loss, responsible for a bases-loaded, game-ending wild pitch in the 10th. He went 1/3 of an inning, allowing one run, earned, on one hit, two walks and no strikeouts. Greg Wilborn was the starting pitcher, leaving after four innings having allowed two runs, both earned, on four walks, four hits and five strikeouts.
Other pitchers to take the mound included the twin lefthanders Blake Wascom and Blake Haagen. Wascom threw 2 1/3 solid innings, allowing no runs on two hits while neither striking out nor walking anyone. Haagen was just as effective, throwing 2 1/3 and giving up no runs on just one hit, with one walk against five strikeouts in ten batters faced.
Arkansas State's Nick Lambert (1-0) earned the win in just 1/3 of an inning, inducing a pop-up from Fontenot to end the Cajuns' 10th.
