NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

UNO's win on Sunday against Valparaiso 9-8, gave the Privateers a three-game sweep on the Lakefront. The win marks the first time a Privateers squad went 3-0 in back-to-back weekends since 2008 and its the club's first 6-1 start since 1996.

"We're jacked up about the start," said Head Coach Blake Dean to UNO's website. "We give the guys goals every week as we go along and as long as we keep meeting our goals the sky is the limit for this team. We're playing good baseball, but we've got to get even better."

Preston Marsh was the big contributor at the plate for UNO, going 3-4, with 4 RBI.

The Privateers return to action at Louisiana-Lafayette on Tuesday at 6 p.m.
