(WVUE) -

The win streak is now 13 in a row for the Southeastern Lions. Last night in Hammond, SLU needed just 7-innings to dispatch of Southern 18-2.

The Lions got all the runs they would need to win the game in the second.

Julian Service, who stole second, and Carson Crites drew back-to-back walks from reliever Jarod Jarreau (0-3) to open up the inning. Catcher Sam Roberson, a senior from Dallas, Texas, followed with an RBI single to left, driving in Service.

Crites and Roberson both advanced into scoring position on a wild pitch ahead of a walk to third baseman Kennon Menard. Seward drove in Crites on a sacrifice fly.

After a wild pitch moved both Roberson and Menard into scoring position, Breaud drew a walk to load the bases once again. Roberson scored on Jameson Fisher's sacrifice fly to right-center field to put the Lions up, 4-1.

Southeastern added a single run in the third, but the Jaguars got it back on one-out, solo home run by first baseman Marcus Hodge in the fourth inning.

The Lions put the game out of reach with four runs each in the fourth and fifth innings, tacking on the final five runs in the sixth.

Freshman right-hander Carlo Graffeo (3-0) earned the win, allowing the pair of solo homers in four innings of work. Gabe Von Rosenberg tossed a pair of scoreless innings in relief and Cliff Hurst worked a scoreless seventh to close it out.
