Tulane turns back UNO, 5-2

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Win number 600 at Turchin Stadium came against UNO Tuesday night and it gave the Greenies the First NBC Bank Cup. Tulane's 5-2 win over the Privateers was their 10th win in their last 11 games.

Tulane (32-14) got off to a hot start in the bottom of the second, when Hunter Hope hit an inside-the-park home run into center field for the game's first run. Grant Brown followed that up with an RBI-single that scored Williams for a quick 2-0 lead. UNO (28-19) made things interesting, scoring in the fourth and fifth, but the Green Wave matched in the bottom half of each of those frames to keep the Privateers from jumping ahead.

J.P. France picked up his fifth win of the season while Jordan Priddle took the loss for UNO.

The Green Wave will continue their home stand Wednesday against Southern while UNO will get ready for a three-game set against Southeastern, beginning Friday on the Lakefront.
