Cajuns Travel For Rematch With Greenies
The Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns will be looking to even a score Tuesday night when they take on the Tulane Green Wave at Greer Field/Turchin Stadium. Game time is scheduled for 6:30 with pre-game beginning at 6:00 on ESPN 1420.
Louisiana (20-14-1) will send right hander Evan Guillory (2-2, 4.54 ERA) to the mound. Guillory was outstanding in a 4.1 inning relief stint Friday night against Arkansas State and has allowed just one earned run in his last 11.1 innings.
Sophomore lefty Ross Massey (0-4, 7.04) will get the start for Tulane. Massey was one of the premier pitchers in the American Conference a year ago, but has struggled with his control all season, having issued 25 walks in 23 innings.
Tulane was only 7-13 when they came to M. L. “Tigue” Moore Field at Russo Park, but has stormed back to even their record at 18-18, including a three game sweep of Connecticut over the weekend.
In the previous meeting, the Green Wave plated six runs (three earned) in the first three innings en route to a 6-4 win before 4,910 fans at Russo Park. The Cajuns got nine hits in that contest, including a two run homer from Joe Robbins, who had three of the Cajuns’ hits.
Louisiana leads the all-time series 46-44, but is just 6-10 in New Orleans under head coach Tony Robichaux.
The Cajuns will then return home Wednesday night to take on Southeastern Louisiana. Jack Burk (2-4, 2.58) will be opposed by Derek Mount (1-0, 3.48.)
