Cajuns Down the Demons

Chad Keefer's bat paces UL past Northwestern State

The Cajuns got back into the win column Wednesday night thanks to some good work with the bats and some good-enough work on the mound.

UL busted out of the gates with 2 runs in the first inning. Senior first baseman Scott Hawkins and Matt Goulas scored to put the Cajuns out in front.

Starter Chad Broussard got yanked from the game early on after loading the bases and plunking a Demon's batter, forcing home a run in the second. UL trailed 4-2 in the first half of the game but heated up late.

UL erupted for five runs in the bottom of the sixth inning. Hawkins and Chad Keefer each singled home a pair in the frame. Keefer finished the night 3-for-4 with 3 RBIs.

UL has a 12-12-1 record overall after last night's 'W'. The Cajuns now turn their attention to a big Sun Belt showdown this weekend at the "Tigue" against Middle Tennessee State.
