HAMMOND, LA (WVUE) -

Southeastern Louisiana scored a pair of runs in the first inning Tuesday and never looked back, running away with a 9-3 victory over Tulane. The win is the sixth straight for Southeastern (19-9) in the series with Tulane (11-15).

Cody Grosse led off the bottom of the first with a triple off the wall in right-center field. He trotted home to score when Tulane’s relay throw to third base hit him in the back and rolled away.

Southeastern extended its lead in the fourth. A deep fly ball off the bat of Brennan Breaud allowed Daniel Wasinger to tag and advance to third.

Making just the second start of his career, freshman Trey Harrington blasted a three-run home run to left field. It was the first of his career and staked starting pitcher Mason Knopp to a 5-1 lead.

Southeastern scored three runs in the eighth without a base hit, extending its lead to 9-2. Knopp (2-1) earned the win, allowing two runs – one earned – in six innings of work. He scattered five hits and one walk, striking out four batters.

Trent Johnson (1-2) suffered the loss for Tulane, allowing two runs in two innings. He surrendered four hits and one walk.

Southeastern will be back on the diamond Thursday with a Southland Conference series at McNeese in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Tulane will begin a three-game series at South Florida, also on Thursday.

    As Anthony Davis has stated multiple times, legacies are built with postseason success. Not just defeating the 3rd-seed Trail Blazers, but sweeping them in a series that they dominated from start to finish. Well, it doesn't get much better than that. "I just try to go out every game and just play to the best of my ability, to go out there and help the team win. I'm trying to build a legacy here in New Orleans, and let people know that we're for real," said Anthony Da
