The Lions took a one run lead in the bottom of the first after a triple to the gap in left center field. One batter later he would score after a fielding error at first base.

In the top of the second the Jaguars would answer. Adam Ballew would lead off the inning with a single to center field, then moved to second base after a throwing error by the pitcher in an attempted pickoff at first base. Matt Bolger would drew a two-out walk then Ballew would advance to third on a wild pitch by Cashman. Garrett DeGallier then hit a two-out RBI single to left-center field to tie the game.

The Lions would regain the lead in the bottom of the second inning. A two-out walk by Jaguar Starter Ryne Long, followed by an infield single to move him to second. Then a two-out RBI single to center field would give SLU the lead back at 2-1, but they weren’t done just yet. A two-run single to center field would extend the lead to 4-1 when it was all said and done.

The Jags threatened in the top of the third by loading the bases with one out. It started with Jared Barnes hitting an single, then a walk by Bud Collura followed by a single to center field by Ballew. Danny Martinez would score Barnes on a sacrifice fly to left field to cut the lead to 4-2.

SLU would add another run in the bottom of the third to regain their three-run advantage.

The Jags hopes for a comeback were doused as the Lions tacked on seven runs over the final two innings to put the game away 12-2.

The Jags fall to 22-12 on the season while Southeastern Louisiana improve to 25-9.

South Alabama will return home to host Appalachian State for a three-game series beginning on Friday at Eddie Stanky Field.
