Game 1 on Saturday came with some “free baseball”, as Louisiana overcame an early 4-0 deficit, to force extra innings, and eventually earn a gutty 8-5 victory in 12 innings.

Junior Carson Baranik had a rough first inning, giving up four runs (two earned). However, he was lights out after the first, throwing nine innings, allowing seven hits fanning five batters, and walking two in a no decision.

“Carson was big for us settling in and getting his slider and changeup down after the first inning,” said UL coach Tony Robichaux.

Freshmen Reagan Bazar earned his first college victory after throwing two solid innings in relief. He allowed a run on two hits, walking four, and struck out two.

“Reagan is a true freshman and had a chance to give up his milk and didn’t which allowed us more time to get to Hicks,” said Robichaux.

Matt Hicks pitched in the 12th, procuring the win for Louisiana, and earning the save, the 16th of his Cajun career.

Louisiana’s bats were active from start to finish, especially that of first baseman Chase Compton. The senior out of Slidell had a career-best 4 RBI, going 2-5 at the plate, and scoring a run of his own.

“This is a battling group,”explained Robichaux. “Chase took a while to get going, but today he showed what he could do for this team. We have a couple very prolific hitters who still haven’t busted through yet, but they will and hopefully we can keep rolling.”
