YOUNGSVILLE, La. (June 24, 2018)- In their return to Fabacher Field after a four-game road trip, the Acadiana Cane Cutters recorded an incredible walk-off win against the Texas Marshalls with a score of 9-8.

He then hit an RBI double in the fourth inning to score Rhett McCall (Lamar). McCall later recorded an RBI single in the eighth to score Preston Faulkner (SE Louisiana).
The Cutters began an explosive rally in the bottom of the ninth. Cole Taylor (Texas A&M) kicked things off by reaching first base on an error and proceeding to steal second.
