HAMMOND, LA (WVUE) -

The Southeastern Louisiana baseball team swept a Southland Conference doubleheader from Incarnate Word, 4-2 and 9-0, Sunday at Pat Kenelly Diamond at Alumni Field.

Southeastern (10-6, 3-0 Southland) jumped in front quickly in the first game, plating a pair of first-inning runs. The Lions smashed four extra-base hits, including Jameson Fisher's fifth home run of the season.

In the second game, the Lions chased the UIW (3-12, 0-3 Southland) starting pitcher in the fourth inning as they coasted to a doubleheader and series sweep

It was the Lions first sweep of a conference-opening series since the 2013 season when they defeated Northwestern State in 3-straight games, 3-2, 7-4 and 3-2, March 22-24, in Natchitoches, Louisiana.

Southeastern wraps up a 4-game homestand Tuesday, hosting South Alabama at 6 p.m. for Local Heroes Night. All first responders will receive free admission if they attend in uniform or present a valid ID.
