Cajuns Sweep UTSA Behind Robichaux's Outing
Ryan Wilson threw 2 2/3 innings of hitless baseball to set up Matt Hicks for the save. Hicks, who came in with a runner on second and two outs in the ninth, needed just two pitches to notch his third save of the season.
The Cajuns (7-1) extended their win streak to four games, a stretch that began with a midweek win over Northwestern State on Wednesday. Louisiana improved to 9-0 all-time in weekend series against UTSA (5-3), sweeping a set for the third time.
The Cajuns never fell behind, scoring in the bottom of the first inning. Harrison was hit by a pitch from UTSA starter Clint Sharp, stole second and scored when Michael Strentz singled into center field. Harrison scored both of Louisiana's runs.
UTSA had runners on first and third base in the ninth inning after John Welborn took the first offering from Hicks and drove it to left field. Another first pitch swing came on Hicks' next offering, but this time it was a harmless grounder to Compton who stepped on the first base bag to record the series' final out.
The Cajuns will face LSU 6pm Tuesday night at the "Tigue" for the first time since 2002.
