Cajuns Crack The Pioneers 9-3
Louisiana's Ragin' Cajun baseball team (7-4) remains perfect at home (6-0) after their 9-3 win on Saturday against the Sacred Heart Pioneers.
Wyatt Marks improved to 2-0 on the season, throwing 6.0 innings of work, allowing 5 hits, 2 earned runs and struck out 8, keeping the 4,285 fans in attendance happy.
"What I liked was us bouncing back," said head coach Tony Robichaux. "He gave up those 2 early runs, but never blinked and we were able to come back from that."
Marks gave up 3 hits to the first three Pioneer batters as Sacred Heart led 2-0 five minutes into the ballgame. He then settled in, throwing good baseball through six innings while his team performed well around him.
"You might not win every game, but you try to be the same team every time out," said Robichaux.
Freshmen Hogan Harris threw 2 innings of work, allowing 1 run, fanning 1.
Will Bacon finished off the final inning of work with 2 strikeouts.
Offensively, Joe Robbins led Louisiana with 3 hits and 2 RBI.
"He's been great for us all season," said Robichaux of Robbins. "He's been able to play multiple positions and do so well."
Robbins started in center field for a Louisiana team that nearly played error free baseball. Shortstop Hunter Kasuls was tabbed with an error before the final out of the day.
Kasuls finished with 1 hit, as did Dylon Poncho and Brian Mills.
Stefan Trosclair, Ishamel Edwards and Alex Pinero all finished with a pair of hits, as the Cajuns finished with a dozen on the day.
Louisiana and Sacred Heart will finish their 3 game weekend series tomorrow at M.L. "Tigue" Moore Field. First pitch is at 1:00. Pregame begins at 12:30 on News Talk 96.5 KPEL. Jay Walker will have the call.
