Luke Wagley threw five innings to pick up the win on the strength of eight strikeouts versus just four hits.
Wagley led the Cajuns back to a .500 record overall, at 12-12-1 so far in 2009. Matt Broussard started the game and lasted just 1 1/3 innings, allowing three hits to score four runs, though only one was earned.
Other Cajuns to take the mound included Blake Haagen (2/3 inning) and Gregory Harmon (1 inn), who each gave up one hit and no runs, and Justin Robichaux, who threw a perfect ninth inning.
On the flipside, the Demons used 10 pitchers in the game, five allowing runs to score.
Chad Keefer paced the Cajuns' lineup with three RBIs on a 3-for-4 outing, including a sacrifice fly. Scott Hawkins was 2-for-3 on the night with two RBIs, but will have to wait at least until Friday to try for the team's all-time career home run record again.
Travis Whipple (1-for-5) and Alex Fuselier (1-3, double) each drove in a run, while Kyle Olasin and Greg Fontenot each did their best to keep the bases occupied with 2-for-4 and 2-for-3 outings respectively. Olasin extended his team-long hitting streak to nine games.
Louisiana now turns its attention to a Sun Belt Conference series with conference-leader Middle Tennessee this weekend at "Tigue" Moore Field. The series runs Friday-Sunday, April 3-5 and commences with the opener at 6:30 p.m. on Friday. Saturday's game will begin at 2 p.m., and will be televised on MyKLAF. The series wraps up Sunday with a 1 p.m., first pitch.
Cajuns Down Demons 11-5
