Baseball team takes series with victory over Mobile
February 12, 2010
The Loyola University New Orleans baseball team took the weekend series with a 5-2 victory over the University of Mobile Feb. 7 at Ram Field.
Alex Wolf picked up the win for the Wolfpack with 7 innings of 2-run, 6-hit ball. He walked none and fanned none. Kevin Fontenot worked a perfect 9th for the save. Fontenot has three saves in three appearances this season.
Jarrin Brister took the loss for Mobile (1-4, 1-4) after allowing 2 runs on 9 hits in 7 innings of work. Justin Beck finished 2-of-3 for Mobile, while Cameron White finished 1-for-4 with 1 RBI.
The Wolfpack pounded out 15 hits, including 3-hit performances from David McChesney and Tyler Duplantis. Fontenot and Brooks McMinn collected two hits apiece in the top two spots of the batting order.
A wild pitch from Brister gave Loyola the first run of the game with 2 outs in the 1st inning and the score stayed 1-0 in favor of the visitors through 5 innings.
Loyola used back-to-back singles and a stolen base to open the 6th with a run, but the Rams answered with their first run of the game in the bottom of the 6th when a 2-out double from Brad Sheffield put a runner at 3rd, and a balk from Wolf plated White.
After a scoreless 7th, the Wolfpack again struck with a 3-spot in the 8th to put the game away thanks to five singles from the first six hitters to step to the plate. A White RBI-single in the bottom of the 8th for Mobile capped the scoring.
The Loyola University New Orleans baseball game today at Segnette Field against Faulkner has been cancelled due to poor weather and travel conditions.
First pitch for Saturday's two-game set will now be at 1 p.m., pushed back an hour from the originally scheduled noon start. Today's contest is not expected to be made up.
