(WVUE) -

Nicholls State clinched their series against Lamar University with a 5-4 victory Sunday afternoon in the rubber match at Vincent-Beck Stadium.

After Lamar (26-19, 12-12 SLC) took a 1-0 lead in the first on an RBI single from Bryndon Arredondo, Joey Morales tied the game with an RBI single that scored Quade Smith.

Smith came up big in the next frame, smacking a two-out, two-RBI triple to the gap in right center which gave Nicholls (23-23, 10-11 SLC) a 3-1 edge.

Daniel Goff improved to 3-2, picking up the win in relief. Adam Tarver earned his seventh save of the season, allowing just one hit in 1.1 innings of work. Tarver also struck out two.

The Colonels have four days to prepare for a three-game homestand with Stephen F. Austin, beginning Friday.

    Not much movement in my AP poll this week, but that will change after this weekend, The Iron Bowl should shake up top six. The Tide are favored by four, but the Tigers come into the matchup red-hot. The winner of this big one goes to Atlanta and the SEC Championship game. LSU moves up to No. 16 in my latest rankings, and should only move upward going forward. If they beat Texas A&M, and win their bowl game, the Tigers could land close to my top ten.
