Cajuns Make It Six in a Row With Sweep of Troy
Greg Davis had three hits and drove in five runs, and his bases loaded triple put the Cajuns ahead for good as Louisiana finished off a three game sweep of Troy with a 10-5 win before 4,272 at M. L. "Tigue" Moore Field.
Brian Mills singled with one out in the sixth inning and Blake Trahan walked. Brenn Conrad singled through the left side to load the bases and Davis unloaded them with his shot into the left-center field gap to put the Cajuns on top 6-4.
Troy got the first two men on in the seventh inning against freshman reliever Wyatt Marks (1-0). Dylan Moore, who was the winning pitcher Friday, came on and allowed one inherited runner to score which cut the lead to 7-5.
But the Cajuns weren't finished, as Derek Herrington led off the bottom of the inning with a single and was sacrificed to second on a Mills bunt. Trahan was walked intentionally and Brenn Conrad singled to load the bases. Up stepped Davis once again and his two run single gave the Cajuns a four run cushion. Nick Thurman's sacrifice fly made the score 10-5.
Moore then allowed just one hit over the final two innings for the save, his first of the year.
Troy had taken the lead in the top of the fifth against starter Gunner Leger on two hits, an error and a couple of ground outs before the Cajuns came storming back.
Seven different Cajuns had multi hit games with Davis and Conrad leading the way with three hits apiece. Trahan, Tyler Girouard, Thurman, Herrington and Mills had two hits apiece.
Jeremy McGowan was the victim of the Cajuns' big inning and suffered his second loss of the series.
The Cajuns, (10-5, 3-0) will face New Orleans Tuesday night at 6 at the "Tigue."
