Baseball: Davis Propels Cajuns To Win In Nightcap Against South Alabama

MOBILE, Ala. – Junior Greg Davis’ RBI single in the ninth lifted the third-ranked Louisiana baseball team to an 8-7 victory over South Alabama in the nightcap of a twinbill on Saturday at Stanky Field.




With runners on first and third and two outs, Davis drove a single into right field to score Seth Harrison and give the Cajuns (45-7, 22-4 Sun Belt) their 14 consecutive weekend series victory. The 45 wins in the regular season ties the 2005 team for the second most in program history.




Davis had five RBI in the game going 3-for-4 at the plate with a grand slam and scored a pair of runs. Jace Conrad also went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and scored two runs.




“We almost let the game get away from us, but we got a timely hit from Greg Davis and we were able to get a sweep of a doubleheader which isn’t an easy thing to do,” head coach Tony Robichaux said.




Freshman Reagan Bazar earned his fourth victory of the season throwing 2.1 scoreless innings to close out the contest. Bazar scattered three hits and posted a strikeout in the outing.




“It was really big to have a freshman come out and get a win under that kind of pressure at South Alabama,” Robichaux added. “He didn’t give them anything and let his defense play behind him.”




Reliever James Traylor was saddled with the loss giving up the run in the ninth after throwing 3.2 scoreless innings.




The Cajuns carried a seven run lead into the seventh inning before the Jaguars (21-28, 10-15 Sun Belt) plated seven runs on five singles and three walks. Louisiana used three pitchers in the inning before Drew LaBounty singled in the tying run with two outs.




Louisiana jumped out to a 4-0 edge in the top of the second as Davis sent a 1-2 pitch over the fence in left with the bases loaded for his first career home run.




Kyle Clement added to the Ragin’ Cajuns lead in the top of the fourth doubling into the gap in left center to score Davis from first with one out.




In the next inning, Conrad drove his seventh home run over the fence in right field to increase the Cajuns advantage to 7-0.




Louisiana improves its road record to 21-2 on the year, which continues to lead the nation.




Junior Carson Baranik had another quality start holding the Jaguars to two runs in six innings with four strikeouts in a no decision.




The Ragin’ Cajuns go for the series sweep tomorrow at 1 p.m. in the series finale against South Alabama. Cody Boutte will make the start with a 6-0 record and a 2.62 ERA.
