Baseball: Glass Leads Cajuns Past Nicholls State

Buddy Glass pitched eight scoreless innings to lead the Cajuns

Chris Whitehead, Sports Information –

LAFAYETTE-Sophomore pitcher Buddy Glass recorded a career-high 14 strikeouts
to lead Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns to an 8-0 victory over in-state foe
Nicholls State Tuesday night at M.L. “Tigue” Moore Field.

Glass allowed no runs on just two hits, fanning 14 and walking just one.

He tied a career high with 8.0 innings pitched. The Clermont, Fla., native
pitched eight innings against UC-Davis on March 4, 2005, as the Cajuns
downed the Aggies 6-2 in Hawaii.

In Tuesday’s game against Nicholls State, only one runner advanced past
first base.

The righthander currently has 21 strikeouts in just two appearances against
the Colonels. In 15.0 innings of work, Glass has allowed just a pair of
free passes and no extra base hits.

The Cajuns scratched the scoreboard in the first inning. Senior Josh Landry
got his first extra base hit of the season as he ripped a triple to left
centerfield. Landry crossed home plate thanks to a two-out double Jefferies
Tatford. Tim Santiago plated Tatford with an RBI single up the middle.

The two runs would prove to be enough, but the Cajuns added some insurance
runs in the latter innings.

The Ragin’ Cajuns added three runs in the bottom of the fifth inning and
then scored three more runs in the bottom of the eighth inning.

The Cajuns recorded 13 hits as a team including seven extra base hits. UL
ripped a pair of triples and five doubles on the night.

John McCarthy and Santiago led the way for the Cajuns, both collecting three
hits including one double apiece.

Landry had a pair of hits on the night including his triple in the first
inning that led to the Cajuns first run of the night.

Jonathan Lucroy had only one hit in the game, but made it a good one ripping
an RBI triple into center field. The triple was the of the sophomore’s
career.

McCarthy also stole his team leading ninth base of the season. The Cajuns
are currently 5-0 when the Palos Park, Ill. native steals a base.

The Cajuns will return to action on Friday, March 10 through Monday, March
13 as they compete in the Texas-San Antonio Tournament. UL will hit the
field Friday morning at 11 a.m. as they take on Illinois in the first game
of the tournament. The Cajuns will continue play on Saturday, March 11
against Texas A&M at 3 p.m. On Sunday, the Cajuns are set to play Iowa at
11 a.m. The Cajuns will conclude play in the tournament taking on
tournament host UTSA on Monday afternoon at 3 p.m.
