For the second time in three days, the Bulldogs needed 10 innings to get a result. Only this time, Louisiana Tech came out on the winning side with a walk-off 2-1 win over Southeastern Louisiana off a throwing error by the Lions in the third and final game of the series Sunday at J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park.

 

Louisiana Tech (1-2) salvaged the series after senior Tyler Qualls hit a bases-loaded ground ball to the Southeastern (2-1) first baseman Kevin Carr, who opted to throw home in an effort for a potential double play in the bottom of the 10th. A high throw by Carr forced catcher Jameson Fisher off home plate, which allowed Taylor Nichols to score the winning run from third and clinch the first victory of the season for the Bulldogs.

 

Nichols led off the inning with a double to right-center field, followed by back-to-back intentional walks for Taylor Love and Tyler Ervine to load the bases with no outs and the winning run 90 feet away.

 

"We had our chance Friday night to win and let it get away from us," head coach Wade Simoneaux. "I am excited for our guys. They have been working hard with not a lot to show for it up until today. Our plan with pitching was to make [Southeastern] hit and not hit batters. According to our plan, they did exactly what we wanted. We had two pitchers today that were perfect for that role and could make them get hits to score runs.

 

Laetten Galbraith (1-0) earned his first win of the season and the second of his career after coming on in the sixth inning to throw five complete innings, while allowing one run off just three hits and striking out three batters. Senior right hander Richie Navari started for the Bulldogs and was impressive in the outing, shutting out the Lions in the first five innings of play, while giving up just two hits on the day.

 

Southeastern's Kyle Cedotal (0-1) came on in relief in the sixth innings and was charged with the loss, despite allowing one unearned run and one hit in four innings. Mason Klotz closed out the game for the Lions, but Cedotal was responsible for the winning run. Kyle Keller started for the visitors from Hammond and allowed one run off eight Bulldog hits in 5.0 innings of work.

 

Tech broke up a scoreless game in the fourth inning off an RBI fielder's choice by Taylor Burch to score Ervine and give the Bulldogs' their first lead of the series. In the sixth, Southeastern tied it up with a two-out RBI single up the middle by Sam Roberson to score Andrew Godbold from second base.

 

For Tech, Ervine led offensively after going 2-for-2 on the afternoon with a run scored and three walks. He ended the weekend with a .500 batting average after totaling five hits in 10 at bats.

 

Nichols also totaled the first multi-hit game of his LA Tech career with a 2-for-5 effort, while also scoring the winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning to give the Bulldogs the win. Nichols' double in the final frame was the only extra base hit of the game for both teams.

 

Southeastern's Jacob Williams ended the day 3-for-4, while Sam Roberson recorded two hits in four at bats with an RBI for the Lions. Williams and Roberson combined for the Lions' five hits on the afternoon. The Bulldogs out-hit the Lions 9-5 in the final game of the series Sunday.

 

LA Tech continues its home stretch with a three-game series next weekend against Tulane as the Bulldogs will get an early start in Conference USA action. The series begins at 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 21 at J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park in Ruston.
