(WVUE) -

Southeastern Louisiana rallied from a four-run deficit Sunday at Blue Wahoos Stadium in Pensacola, topping Troy, 5-4, to complete a weekend sweep of the field at the Cox Diamond Invitational.

The Lions (7-4) wrapped up the weekend undefeated thanks in part to its biggest rally of the season and completed its 8-game road trip with a 5-3 record.

The first four batters of the game singled off Southeastern starting pitcher Kade Granier, staking the Trojans (6-5) to an early lead. Granier walked the next batter, right fielder Mason Rogers, to force in a run. Troy picked up another run on a double-play ball, one of three the Lions would turn in the game.

A junior from Destrehan, Louisiana, Granier settled in after a rough initial frame to work six innings, his longest outing of the season.

Bryce Tassin (2-1) earned the win, working two scoreless innings in relief of Granier. The redshirt freshman from Walker, Louisiana, surrendered one hit and one walk, striking out one batter.

Southeastern returns home to host West Virginia in a pair of midweek contests Tuesday and Wednesday.
