The 22nd-ranked Louisiana Ragin’ Cajun softball team swept a Sun Belt Conference doubleheader from the Troy Trojans on Saturday at Lamson Park, winning the first game, 9-1, before taking the second game, 6-0.

The two wins extended Louisiana’s season-long win streak to 18 games.

In the opener, Troy scored the first run of the game, plating a run in the top half of the first inning, before the Cajuns scored nine unanswered runs, with five runs in the second, and four in the third, as they went on the the five-inning, mercy-rule win.

Brianna Cherry led the way for UL, offensively, going 3-for-3, with a double, a triple, two runs scored, and four RBI’s.

Jordan Wallace (23-6) picked up her 13th-consecutive victory in the circle, while Michaela Hamilton (5-6) suffered the loss.
