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.
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.
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.
