#1 LSU falls to Rainin' Cajuns

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, La -

Top-ranked LSU dropped a 4-1 decision to No. 10 Louisiana-Lafayette Tuesday night in a game that was stopped in the top of the sixth inning due to inclement weather at Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field.

LSU returns to The Box Friday to face Yale at 7 p.m. Friday. The game can be heard on the LSU Sports Radio Network, and live video, audio and stats will be available at LSUsports.net.

Tuesday's loss ended LSU's 34-game win streak in regular-season mid-week games and its 32-

game win streak against Louisiana schools. The Tigers' last loss in both categories came to

Northwestern State on April 15, 2011, in Alex Box Stadium.

"It's a strange feeling to lose a game when you don't get to play the full nine innings, but those are the rules of baseball," said LSU coach Paul Mainieri. "I never expected us to go 56-0 this season, and there's no shame in losing a rain-shortened game to a Top 10 team. You have to credit ULL with playing very well, and things just never seemed to go our way the whole night. We saw some issues that we need to address, so we'll go back to practice on Thursday and start preparing for the weekend."

Cody Glenn (1-1) was charged the loss for LSU after allowing five hits, three runs and one walk in four innings. Greg Milhorn (2-0) collected the win for ULL. Milhorn pitched five innings, only allowing four hits and one run.

Glenn got through the first and second innings only allowing two hits. In the top of the third, he

walked Greg Davis to open the frame. After striking out Caleb Adams, Seth Harrison hit a triple to center field to collect the first run. Blake Trahan then hit a sacrifice fly to right field to push the Ragin' Cajun lead to 2-0.

LSU threatened in the bottom of the third after freshman Kramer Robertson reached first on a hit by a pitch. Robertson then advanced to second on a wild pitch. With two outs, Laird singled to the shortstop, but Robertson was thrown at home to end the inning.

ULL added another run in the top of the fourth. Michael Strentz led off the inning with a single up the middle. Strentz reached third after a sac bunt and a fly out to center field. Jace Conrad then singled Strentz in on an RBI single to third base.

Centerfielder Andrew Stevenson sparked the Tigers with a leadoff triple in the bottom of the fifth.

The next batter, Tyler Moore flied out to left field to score Stevenson on a sacrifice fly. The Tigers trailed 3-1.

After replacing Glenn in the top of the fifth, Alden Cartwright retired ULL in order. In the top of the sixth, Cartwright gave up a leadoff single to Ryan Wilson. Wilson would advance to second on a groundout and then to third on a stolen base. After facing four batters and allowing one hit,

Cartwright was replaced by junior Zac Person.

Tyler Girouard entered the game to pinch hit and reached on a fielding error by Robertson, allowing Wilson to score.
