Chase Compton delivered the game-winning hit in the fifth inning when he ripped a double down the left field line to score Harrison and Strentz – who led off the inning with back-to-back base hits – and break a 3-all tie.

UTSA loaded the bases in the seventh inning and used a bases-clearing double from Daniel Rockett off reliever Matt Plitt to cut the Cajuns lead to 7-6.

Matt Hicks held the Roadrunners hitless and retired six of the seven batters he faced to secure the landmark victory for Robichaux and the weekend series victory for Louisiana.

The two squads wrap up the series on Sunday at 1 p.m. Louisiana is scheduled to start right-hander Austin Robichaux (0-0, 1.80 ERA).
