The Acadiana Cane Cutters beat the Brazos Valley Bombers 8-1 in the second game of their road series to earn the split. Nick Johnson (Southern Miss) started on the mound for Acadiana going 5 innings and giving up just 1 run. He was able to pitch to contact and keep the Bombers hitters off balance with his off speed pitches. He was relieved by Ryan May (LSU) who closed out the game with 4 perfect innings and 2 strikeouts.
Connor Barron (Southern Miss) and James Ziegler (Chandler-Gilbert CC) led the Cane Cutters on offense, each collecting 2 hits. Nick Johnson earned the win tonight for the Cane Cutters and they are now 2-3. Zach Girrens got the loss for the Bombers, and they are now 5-1.
