The Ragin Cajuns baseball team has had a tough season, with a losing record, but they own two victories in a season over the 19th ranked LSU Tigers since 2002. UL-Lafayette completed the season series sweep of the Tigers with a 3-1 win last night at the Wally Pontiff Junior Classic. The difference was a two-run first inning for the Cajuns and LSU left 11 runners on base, including the tying run on second inning in the 9th inning.

In other baseball action, Louisiana Tech thumped McNeese 9-2. The Bulldogs scored six runs in the 9th inning. Dalton Skelton and Mason Robinson each had two run triples.

Nicholls knocked off Mississippi State seven to four. Lee Clark hit his first home run of the season. Southeastern Louisiana hammered Tulane nine to three for its sixth straight win over the Green Wave. And Northwestern State defeated Lamar 7-2. The Demons started fast with four runs in the first inning.


Anthony Davis had 36 points and 14 rebounds, but Portland’s Damian Lillard had 41 points as the Blazers defeated the Pelicans 107-103. Lillard was fantastic in the 4th quarter as he scored 20 points in the final 12 minutes to help Portland rally back from an 11-point deficit. New Orleans will look to avoid a third straight loss when they visit the Cavaliers and LeBron James on Friday night.
