(WVUE) -

Southeastern (4-1) suffered their first defeat of the season after Tulane (3-1) scored twice in the top of the ninth to take a 5-4 lead that they would hold onto in the bottom of the frame.

In coach David Pierce's first game in Hammond with the Green Wave, his team jumped out to a 3-0 lead until a Kyle Cedotal 3-run triple and Daniel Midyett RBI single put Southeastern ahead in the bottom of the seventh.

With the Lions looking to end the game in the top of the ninth, Richard Carthon knocked pinch runner John Gandolfo in to tie the game and a Lex Kaplan double brought Carthon in from second base to put the Wave back up 5-4.

The visiting team turned to Dan Rankin to close out the ball game and while Southeastern's Jacob Seward was in scoring position with two outs, Rankin forced Kevin Carr to ground out and end the contest.

Tulane plays host to Southeastern March 17th before the Wave travel to Hammond April 28th in the series' season finale.
