Cajuns Head to Southern, Looking to Extend Winning Ways
Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns will try to make it three in a row tonight when they travel to Lee-Hines Field in Baton Rouge to take on the Southern Jaguars tonight.
First pitch is scheduled for 6pm. The game will be heard on ESPN1420 and ESPN1420.com
The Cajuns (15-16) will start senior right-hander Joe Zimmerman (0-1, 7.31). Southern will counter with right-hander Daniel Garcia (1-1, 5.46). Garcia was the starter and losing pitcher when the two teams met on March 13 at M. L. “Tigue” Moore Field. Louisiana jumped out to a 6-0 lead after three innings, highlighted by freshman Dylan Butler’s grand slam home run. Southern came back to within 6-5 but couldn’t get the tying run across the plate. Chris Griffitt, now the Saturday starter for Louisiana, was the winning pitcher in that game and Matt Hicks earned his third save of the season.
The Cajuns return home this weekend for a three-game series with FIU.
