The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns will play their first home conference series of the season beginning tonight when they entertain the Troy Trojans in the first of a three game series at M. L. "Tigue" Moore Field at Russo Park.  First pitch is scheduled for 6:00 pm.

The Cajuns (9-11, 1-2 Sun Belt) are coming off a 5-2 win over McNeese State Wednesday night in Lake Charles.  Louisiana outhit the Cowboys 8-5, jumping out to an early 4-0 lead and riding the pitching of freshman Austin Perrin and two relievers to the win.

They'll face one of the league's best in the Trojans, who have accumulated a 14-7 overall record despite dropping two of three games last weekend at home against Little Rock.  Preseason Pitcher of the Year Andrew Crane (2-2, 4.33) will get the ball tonight for Troy.  Nick Lee (1-1, 2.60) will be the starting pitcher for the Cajuns.  Troy has been a balanced club this season, ranking second in the league in hitting, third in pitching and second in defense.
