Louisiana's Ragin' Cajun softball begins postseason play on Thursday afternoon, squaring off with the Georgia St. Panthers in the semifinals of the Sun Belt Conference Tournament in San Marcos, Texas.

This will be the first game of the second day of the tournament, which now shifts to a double-elimination format, after four single-elimination games were played on the first day.

Louisiana swept a three-game series from Georgia St. this season, winning by scores of 10-1, 10-2, and 8-0, all in mercy-rule fashion, at Lamson Park.

Pitching-wise, the Cajuns sport an overall, combined, team ERA. of 2.20, compared to a 8.84 for the opposition, while holding foes to a .184 batting average against.
