(WVUE) -

Tulane rode the hot bats of Kody Hoese and Grant Witherspoon and relied on the pitching of Chase Solesky to beat Lamar 6-2 Wednesday night. The win gave the Green Wave the two-game sweep of the Cardinals.

Solesky pitched 5.0 innings in a strong start and both Hoese and Witherspoon put together multi-hit nights as the Greenies picked up their fifth win of the season.

"I thought we passed two tests this week,” Tulane head coach Travis Jewett said. “One was coming back Tuesday after an off day Monday and a tough weekend result-wise at Ole Miss. For us to leave that in Oxford, learn from it and come back and play as well as we did Tuesday was good. Then we came out here tonight in the second game, and we knew Lamar is a very good team and they were going to come out punching. They did early, and we were able to respond. The way we handled ourselves to come off of a series loss and then off of a win the night before and just play good baseball all around – it was good for us.”

The Green Wave play host to Cal State Fullerton in a three-game series this weekend at Greer Field at Turchin Stadium.

    His name has been brought up a lot since he joined the Saints after preseason last year. But the truth is quarterback Taysom Hill is a bit of a mystery. Head coach Sean Payton raved about him.
