Travis Whipple's grand slam was his sixth on the year, and the Cajuns first of the season. Chance Harst was the last Cajun to hit a grand slam, parking one during the Sun Belt Conference tournament on May 23, 2008, versus South Alabama.
The win is the Cajuns' sixth in a row, all come-from-behind, for the season's longest winning streak. Justin Robichaux pitched the last two innings to earn his second save of the season, moving him into a second-place tie with Danny Farquhar (2006-08) in career saves at 11.
Offensively, the Cajuns were led by Greg Fontenot, who continued his incredible week with a 3-for-4 night with one RBI as the only Cajun with multiple hits, while Kyle Olasin kept a hitting streak alive, now at 13 straight games. He added the Cajuns only other RBI on his 1-for-3 night.
Greg Harmon started the game but left too early to earn a decision, going four innings, allowing two runs, one earned, on four hits, four strikeouts and three walks. He kept Tulane hitless through two innings, allowing the first base runner in the first at bat of the third inning.
Blake Haagen earned the win, moving to 2-0 on the season. He pitched the fifth and sixth innings, allowing just one run on three hits with two strikeouts and two walks. Blake Wascom threw one perfect inning before Robichaux entered and closed the game out with two innings of one-hit work, notching two strikeouts.
