Tulane finishes sweep of San Francisco in more comfortable fashion

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

 After Tulane won Friday on a walk-off walk and Saturday on a walk-off wild pitch, Sunday's 5-3 victory felt like a stress-free outing.

As different as all three were, the end result is a sweep of San Francisco and the Green Wave's record improving to 6-1.

Coach David Pierce's squad started early with a Hunter Hope ground-rule double and a Hunter Williams home run putting the home team up 3-0 after one inning.  From there, junior pitcher Tim Yandel threw seven innings, allowing just three hits and one run.  Grant Brown and Garrett Deschamps added home runs to pad out the lead enough to offset a run scored in each of the last three innings by the Dons.

“(San Francisco is) a good ball club, and they have a good lineup,”said Tulane coach David Pierce, according to Tulane Sports Information. “We were fortunate to hit the long ball today, and Timmy (Yandel) threw another great game for us. None of them are easy, and I think (San Francisco) will go home and do well. We were fortunate to get a sweep.”

The Green Wave embark on their only five-game week starting with a trip across town to UNO (4-3) on Tuesday.  First pitch is set for 6:30 PM at Ron Maestri Field.
