McNeese Baseball Loses To Sam, Faces Elimination

The McNeese baseball Cowboys edged their way into the Southland Conference tournament, but getting that 8th seed meant they would have to face top seed Sam Houston State in their opener.

They played this afternoon in Sugar Land, Texas.

Tied at 1 in the 5th, Ryan O'Hearn singles to center, Andrew Guillotte throws home, but it's cut off and the Bearkats lead 2-to-1.

It's 4-to-1 in the 7th when Hans Ask steals second, the throw gets away and Jackson Gooch comes home, 4-to-2 Sam Houston.

Then in the 8th, Michael Sullivan raps the sharp single and there's gonna be a play at the plate. Here comes Andrew Guillotte and he's gonna be safe! At home and it's 4-to-3.

But in the bottom of the 8th, Kevin Miller cranks the ball out to left field. That's a 3-run home run...

And it puts the game out of reach. Sam wins 8-to-3 and sends McNeese to the dark side of the bracket.
