Cajuns Down Demons 11-5

The Ragin'Cajuns extended their home winning streak to four games, taking an 11-5 decision over the Northwestern State Demons Wednesday night at "Tigue"Moore Field.

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.
