Cajuns Wrap Up Six Game Road Swing in Hattiesburg
The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns wrap up their six game road swing tonight and Wednesday as they travel to Hattiesburg to take on Southern Mississippi. Game time both nights is scheduled for 6:00 at Pete Taylor Park.
Louisiana (12-15), has played well in mid-week games, but they'll have to be at the top of their game against USM (19-7), ranked #12 this week. The Eagles are 12-2 at home this season.
Southern Miss features one of the nation's most potent offenses, averaging 8.7 runs per game, 5th in the nation. Their 30 home runs are tops in college baseball. Hunter Slater (.369-6-28), Luke Reynolds (.363-6-23) and Matt Wallner (.348-6-29) lead the Golden Eagles' offense.
Hogan Harris (1-1, 4.32), who was the winning pitcher in his last start against LSU, will get the start for the Cajuns tonight. He'll be opposed by J. C. Keys (2-2, 6.27). Neither team has announced a starter for game two of the series.
Following the two game series, Louisiana will return home to open a five game homestand as they entertain UTA in a Sun Belt series Friday-Sunday at Russo Park.
