Cajuns Fall To Tigers At Alex Box

 Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajun baseball team saw their 4-game midweek winning streak snapped Wednesday night at Alex Box Stadium in Baton Rouge. LSU scored 2 runs in the first and 3 runs in the third to secure a 5-0 win.

A 77 minute rain delay began in the third inning, shortly after LSU scored on a Grant Dozar 3 run homer. The Cajun bullpen came in when play resumed and did an admirable job.

“Our bullpen really shut the faucet off and didn’t give them anything to work with. The big key is with the bases loaded we had a chance to cut their lead in half and we came away empty,” stated Cajun skipper Tony Robichaux after the game. “With a young ball club, they could have been blown out 20-0, but they stuck with it and if we would have competed a little better at the plate, we are in this ballgame.”

The Cajun were never able to get their bats going. After going hitless in the first five innings, Tyler Federick singled up the middle, getting the first of 3 Cajun hits.

“The one thing we didn’t do well tonight was compete at the plate. We looked at a lot of fastballs tonight,” head coach Tony Robichaux explained in postgame. “They got the big hit on us early and that was enough. We did scatter six hits through nine innings and that is manageable especially in this yard.”

Louisiana returns to Sun Belt play this weekend traveling to Boca Raton, Fla., for a series with current Sun Belt leader Florida Atlantic.
