Cajuns Hammer Middle Tennessee Twice to Win Series

Tony Robichaux is still wondering when the Texas Rangers showed up and put on Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajun uniforms.

The Cajuns, who have struggled mightily at the plate at times this year,  pounded Middle Tennessee pitching for 33 hits and 24 runs Saturday, sweeping a Sun Belt doubleheader 10-4 and 14-0.  The second game was shortened to seven innings because of the mercy rule.

In game one, Dylan Butler’s two run homer broke a 3-3 tie in the fifth inning and Chris Sinclair’s three run shot gave the Cajuns plenty of breathing room.

Chris Griffitt (6-3) went six innings for the win.  Caleb Kellogg pitched the final three innings for his sixth save.

In the second game, Freshman Austin Robichaux (2-4) twirled a complete-game three hit shutout as the Cajuns scored three times in the first inning and never looked back en route to a 14-0 whitewashing of the Blue Raiders.  Robichaux allowed only three singles and did not walk a batter.  All three hits he allowed were with two outs.

His teammates gave him plenty of support, banging out a season-high 19 hits.  Seven different players had a multi-hit game.  Ryan Leonards, Jace Conrad and Chase Compton led the way with three hits apiece. while Leonards, Dylan Butler, Chris Sinclair and Jordan Bourque drove in three runs apiece.

The Cajuns are now 23-27, 11-16 in Sun Belt play.  They will travel to Houston to take on the Cougars Tuesday night before returning home for the final home series of the season against Louisiana-Monroe.
