Second baseman Brenn Conrad was 5-8 in the series with a home run.
Sophomore right hander Evan Guillory will get the start for the Cajuns. Guillory was 5-0 with a 4.05 ERA a season ago in sixteen starts. Louisiana Tech was undecided on their starting pitcher.
The Bulldogs won two out of three over the weekend, defeating Prairie View 7-0 and Southern 15-0 before falling to New Orleans 9-6. Greg Goff is in his second season as head coach.
