The Louisiana Ragin Cajuns dropped their fifth straight on Friday night in a 13-9 loss that was definitely highlighted by a nine-run inning by Texas State.
How It Happened:
The Bobcats opened things up in the second inning when Skyler Valentine hit a one-out RBI double to score Dalton Shuffield. Things really went off the rails in the top of the fifth with a nine-run inning that was highlighted by a three-run blast from Felipe Rodriguez to make it a 10-0 ballgame.
The Cajuns responded though in the bottom frame with three runs coming across highlighted by a two-run double down the left field line courtesy of Brennan Breaux. Todd Lott chopped away at the deficit in the sixth with a two-run double and that was followed up by a four-run seventh inning to get within one run.
However, the Cajuns just couldn’t get over the proverbial hump and Texas State finished the job with a three-run inning that was highlighted by a two-run ground-rule double from Will Hollis to close things out.
Big Number: 13
The Cajuns offense put up 12 hits on the evening, but they couldn’t make anything of it, stranding 13 batters in the process.
Player of the Game: Will Hollis
Hollis made the most of his opportunities at the dish, going three-for-six with four RBIs along with two doubles. Nothing short of impressive.
