(WVUE) -

Mac Sceroler struck out a career-high 12 batters to shut down the Northwestern State bats and Taylor Schwaner smacked a pair of two-run home runs to power the Lion offense as Southeastern Louisiana shut out the Demons, 7-0, Thursday in the series opener at Pat Kenelly Diamond at Alumni Field.

Southeastern (21-12, 9-7 Southland) and the Demons (10-22, 3-10 Southland) will continue the series Friday at 6 p.m.

Schwaner has homered in three consecutive games for the second time this season, producing five home runs in a span of nine plate appearances. He has also smashed a pair of homers in back-to-back games.

The first of his two home runs came in the first.

Sceroler earned the win, allowing two hits and a pair of walks in eight innings. Demon starter Nathan Jones (3-5) suffered the loss, allowing six runs in three innings.

Game two is Friday night.
