The Louisiana Ragin Cajuns may have won the weekend series, but it ended on a bit of a sour note with an 11-9 loss to the Chanticleers of Coastal Carolina.
How It Happened:
The Cajuns got on the board early with a groundout to shortstop resulting in Hayden Cantrelle scoring, but the Chanticleers wasted little time taking the lead with a three-run inning highlighted by an RBI double to right center by Parker Chavers.
After a two-run single by Bradley Riopelle in the third, the Cajuns responded with a three-run inning that was jumpstarted by a Daniel Lahare home run. However, Coastal Carolina put up three more runs with one swing of the bat by Jake Wright as he sent one flying out of center-field to make it an 8-4 ballgame.
Zach Biermann pushed the Chanticleers lead even further with a two-run single in the fifth. The Cajuns tried to fight back late in the ballgame scoring off of a wild pitch and an RBI single from Lahare.
Big Number: 12
