Southeastern Louisiana gets sweep of Central Arkansas

(WVUE) -

Southeastern Louisiana scored single runs in three of the first four innings and three Lion pitchers combined to hold off Central Arkansas in a 3-2 victory in Southland Conference play.

The win helped the Lions (34-16, 20-10 Southland) sweep the series from the Bears (28-23, 15-12 Southland), giving Southeastern its third-consecutive season of at least 20 conference wins.

With the win, the second-place Lions sit 1.5 games back of league-leader McNeese State. Southeastern, which has wrapped up its Southland schedule, can finish anywhere from first to third.

The Lions could share the regular season title if Lamar sweeps a three-game conference series from the Cowboys this weekend and Stephen F. Austin takes at least a pair from Houston Baptist.

Southeastern returns to the road Tuesday for the final time during the regular season, traveling to Biloxi, Mississippi, for a game against No. 19-ranked Southern Miss (40-12).

    A missed opportunity is what the Green Wave are calling last week's loss at FIU. Tulane simply lacked the execution from the week before in their big win over Tulsa. "You can't bring points with you from the week before. Each game is its own game. You look around college football, and there's a lot of parity," said Tulane Head Coach Willie Fritz. Now comes a new challenge, and one of their biggest yet against 13th ranked South Florida, who hasn't lost a game in 12 months. ...more>>
