LAFAYETTE (KATC) – With two on and two outs in the tenth inning, Austin Todd hit a double to left field just beyond the diving glove of Gavin Bourgeois. The hit scored two and was the difference as Texas won on opening night 3-1.
Louisiana forced extras when Handsome Monica hit a bases loaded fielder’s choice in the 9th. A few batters later Hunter Kasuls ignited the crowd for a moment with a hooking line drive to right. Instead of what felt like a sure game winning it, it was an inning ending out.
starting pitcher Gunner Leger pitched five innings, allowing no runs on two hits in his return from elbow and leg surgeries that cost him the 2018 season.
Louisiana plays game two of this series Saturday at 2.
