Lions hit way to seventh win in last eight against Tulane

NEW ORLEANS – Southeastern Louisiana pounded out 14 hits Tuesday on the way to a 10-3 nonconference win over Tulane at Greer Field at Turchin Stadium. The win was the seventh in the last eight games against Tulane (26-14) for the Lions (22-19).

Falling behind twice on home runs early, Southeastern battled back against the Green Wave bullpen.

A two-run home run in the first staked Tulane to a short-lived lead. Trey Harrington and Nathan Pilutti hit back-to-back home runs leading off the second, tying up the game. It was the third time this season the Lions have hit back-to-back homers.

The only hit off Southeastern reliever Payton Robinson during his three-inning stint was a leadoff homer by Kody Hoese in the third inning. A solo shot, it was Hoese’s nation-leading 21st of the season.

Southeastern took the lead in the fifth. Cody Grosse led off the inning with a double down the right-field line. After Green Wave starting pitcher Krishna Raj issued a walk to Preston Faulkner, both runners advanced into scoring position on a fly out to center field off the bat of Kyle Schimpf

Harrington greeted reliever Robert Price with a two-run single up the middle, putting the Lions on top.

Bryce Tassin (3-2) took over for Robinson on the mound in the bottom of the inning, tossing three scoreless frames as Southeastern added to its lead.

The Lions tacked on a pair in the sixth on a Schimpf ground out and Harrington’s third hit of the game. Four more runs in the seventh put the game out of reach.

Grant Upton and Jared Biddy worked a scoreless inning apiece to close out the game.

Tassin earned the win, yielding just one hit and striking out one. Raj (3-1) suffered the loss, coughing up four runs on five hits and three walks in 4.1 innings pitched. He struck out three.

Brenna Breaud, a senior from Norco, Louisiana, went 4-for-5 at the plate as he closes in on 200 career hits. Harrington was 3-for-5 with four RBIs. Grosse (2-for-5) and Connor Manola (2-for-5) also picked up multiple hits for the Lions.

Southeastern resumes Southland action Friday at 6 p.m. with the opening game of three-game series at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.
