Starting pitcher Brady Domangue took a no-hitter into the eighth inning as the LSU Eunice baseball team wrapped up a sweep of visiting Triton Community College with a 5-2 win on Thursday night.
Domangue allowed his first hit to the leadoff man in the eighth inning, as he finished his night with 13 strikeouts, three walks, one run and one hit in his 107-pitch performance.
Domangue, who came into the night leading the NJCAA in wins, improved to 8-0 with his gem.
"Brady was really good tonight. He had command of his breaking ball and was strike one a lot. It was nice to see him follow up last night's outing with a gem of his own. He pitched with conviction and competitiveness the whole night," head coach Jeff Willis said.
Offensively, Stefan Trosclair finished with three of the seven total hits for the Bengals (24-3), who scored single runs in the fourth, fifth and seventh innings and posted two runs in the sixth inning.
Derek Herrington, Even Powell, Trent Vidrine and Ray Veit each finished with a hit, as Vidrine and C.J. Womack each added an RBI.
The Bengals opened the scoring in the fourth with Powell's RBI double to left-center field to bring home Trosclair before adding their second run an inning later when Kyle St. Pierre scored on a Triton wild throw after Herrington's infield single.
In the sixth, LSU Eunice manufactured a pair of runs with a hit, a Triton error and two walks as Powell and Adam Cagnina both scored.
The hosts last run came in the seventh after Tyler Chapman reached with a leadoff walk before advancing and scoring on a stolen base and a pair of wild pitches.
After their leadoff single in the eighth, Triton used a pair of groundouts to plate their first run before using a leadoff double and a sacrifice fly to score in the ninth.
The Bengals hit the road tomorrow night for a three-game weekend series against Tyler Junior College, with 6 p.m. first pitches on Friday and Saturday night before a 1 p.m. start in the finale on Sunday afternoon.
All three games can be seen on Bengal All-Access. Friday and Saturday night's games can be heard on KVPI 92.5 FM, while Sunday's contest will be on KVPI 1050 AM.
