“The Ragin’ Cajuns loaded the bases with two outs for Myers as the junior, just missed hitting her fourth grand slam of the season, doubled off the wall and cleared the bases. Orgeron then tripled to right to score Myers, before Matte Haack recorded an RBI single for the sixth UL run.”
“Senior Christi Orgeron was 2-for-4 on the afternoon, drove in three runs and hit her team-leading 20th homerun of the season.
“Myers singled with one out in the bottom of the first as Orgeron came to the dish and launched a 1-1 pitch off the right field foul pole for a two-run blast to cut the La.-Monroe lead to 3-2.
“UL added four more runs in the bottom of the sixth as the first four Cajuns reached base, including an RBI single from Orgeron. Later in the inning, Cherry hit a sacrifice fly to right field, Orgeron scored on a wild pitch and Cormier recorded an RBI single to increase the Louisiana lead to 11-4.”
