LAFAYETTE – The Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns Baseball opens its second five-game week in as many weeks on Tuesday when it plays host to in-state opponent Grambling at M.L. “Tigue” Moore Field at Russo Park.

Louisiana (14-6) will host Grambling (6-13) to open the week before facing another in-state foe – 2022 NCAA Regional participant Southeastern Louisiana (12-8) – on Wednesday to close out a stretch of 17 games at home in a 19-game span.

First pitch for both games is scheduled for 6 p.m., with both games being streamed live on ESPN+. Fans can listen to the game locally on 103.3 The Goat, ESPN 1420 AM and on-line on the Varsity Network app.

Louisiana opened Sun Belt Conference play last weekend with a sweep of Arkansas State – its second straight over the Red Wolves – and its first SBC opening-weekend sweep since 2015.

The Ragin’ Cajuns will face Grambling for the first time since the 1998 season and are 11-4 overall against the Tigers.

Junior college transfer Sam Hill (0-1, 13.50 ERA) will make his second start on the mound for Louisiana in Tuesday’s game against Grambling. The right-hander went 3.1 innings with a strikeout in his previous start against Mississippi State last week at MGM Park in Biloxi, Miss.

Wednesday’s contest with SLU will pit two of the top base-stealing teams in Division I with SLU ranked fifth nationally (64) with Louisiana seventh (61). Starters for both teams are to be determined.

Single-game tickets are available by visiting the Louisiana Athletics Box Office at the Cajundome or purchasing by visiting Account Manager [am.ticketmaster.com]. For more information call the Louisiana Athletics Box Office at the Cajundome at (337) 265-2104.
