The SFA baseball team heads to Lake Charles, Louisiana, this weekend in a three-game stint against McNeese, after a three-game series with a 2-1 win against Northwestern State at home.

Manny Vasquez had a tough game against the pitch going 0-4 on at bats, while clean-up hitter Sean Moore scored two runs on four hits. The Lumberjacks fought hard in the fourth-inning and came out swinging against NSU, but were not very effective getting many runs throughout the rest of the game.

Trayson Kubo had a good game pitching, only allowing two runs and six hits all game. He also contributed five strikeouts and only one hit by the pitch. The team only had a few games left after the McNeese series, and they are 5th with 12-8 in the conference and 20-24 on the season.

The same weekend, the Ladyjacks go to Huntsville to compete in a two-game series against Sam Houston in a regular season closer, as they prepare for the Southland Conference Tournament. Facing the No. 1 seed right before the tournament can help and hurt as if they win. Sam Houston is on a three-game winning streak,

blowing out both teams by three or more, most recently a shutout against Incarnate Word, 9-0. The Bearkats have been on this run behind pitcher Lindsey McLeod and her play over the last couple of games.

The Ladyjacks went 3-0 against Northwestern State last weekend, and walked it off in the eighth-inning, 3-2. Although the last game was close, none of the others were as they won 6-3 and 5-1 the first two games of the series.

The Ladyjacks kick off their series at 4 p.m. Friday in Huntsville for the first game of a doubleheader. The Lumberjacks will begin their series at 6 p.m. Friday in Lake Charles.
