The Jags fell to Nicholls State on Tuesday evening 4-1. The Colonels jumped ahead early with three runs in the first inning and stayed ahead behind Brandon Jackson’s pitching.

Jackson allowed only one run on five hits with six strikeouts and two walks for his first win of the season. Jaguar pitcher Andrew Fonzi took the loss in three innings of work after allowing four runs on five hits with two strikeouts and two walks.

The Colonels first score came on a two out, two run triple to left center. Then they plated another run one batter later on an RBI single to left field. In the top of the third inning, they added another run on a two-out RBI single through the left side.

The Jags were hitless until the bottom of the fifth inning before Whitt Dorsey got a single. He advanced to second base on a failed pickoff attempt. Later that same inning, the Jags would load the bases but Jackson pitched his way out of the jam without allowing a run.

In the bottom of the seventh, the Jags would load the bases again with no outs on three consecutive singles. A sacrifice fly by Hayden Jones would net the only Jaguar run of the game.

Hunter Soleymani, James Traylor and Brandon Boyle all combined to pitch six shutout innings and only allowed two hits with seven combined strikeouts.

Jackson pitched 6 1/3 innings for the Colonels and scattered five hits and only one earned run with six strikeouts. Marc Picciola and Jordan McCoy combined for 2 2/3 innings with each only allowing one hit each with Picciola picking up three strikeouts.

The Jags will travel to Jonesboro, Arkansas for a weekend series against Arkansas State with the first game set to begin at 6pm on Friday.
