McNeese Baseball Stun LSU In A Two Hit Shutout
If you’re just waking up this morning and haven’t checked the scores from last night, then I have one that will kind of shock you.
Not only did the Cowboys beat the #9 ranked LSU Tigers, but they shut them out by winning 7-0 and holding the Tigers to only two hits in the game. It was the Pokes first win over a top 10 team since 2000.
McNeese also became the first Southland Conference team to ever shut out LSU in the conference’s history. The Cowboys scored a run in the first four innings to take the lead 4-0. Starting pitcher Austin Sanders gave the Pokes a solid 6 inning outing and picked up the win.
McNeese added a run in the 6th, 7th and 9th innings to seal the game and beat the Tigers 7-0. What’s even more impressive is that the Cowboys had 13 hits in the game, while the Pokes’ pitching held the LSU Tigers to only two.
The win improved Cowboys to 19-11 on the year. The Cowboys will host Louisiana Tech tonight in Lake Charles, weather permitting.
