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.

    The AP preseason poll came out today, and of course Alabama is No. 1. I'm going to breakdown a few teams in my Top 25. This is the 9th year I'm doing an AP poll. Fist off, no shock, I have the Tide in the top spot. Jalen Hurts, Tua Tagovailoa, doesn't matter who's at QB. Week one they play Louisville in Orlando. Right now they're only 24-point favorites. Georgia holds No. 2 in my poll. Another year of Jake Fromme under center is a great reason to have the Dawgs here. South Carolina ...more>>

    Brandon Legendre is a highlight waiting to happen every time he touches the ball for E.D. White. Legendre is entering his final year with the Cardinals, and his head coach knows he's got a special talent behind center. "Obviously you see his athletic ability, but the thing that's more impressive, he has the desire to be good. He's willing to put in the work. The things he has to do to be a good player, and that's the thing that's been really impressive. Yeah, he's fun to watch. ...more>>
