Last weekend, the McNeese State baseball team strangely had to root for Lamar to beat Nicholls State and give the Cowboys a spot in the Southland Conference tournament.

Well, the Cardinals did win, McNeese did go to the tournament, and today, the Cowboys would have to beat their arch-rivals to keep their season alive.

I guess irony can be pretty ironic sometimes.

An elimination game in Sugar Land, Texas.

And McNeese looks good early. Michael Sullivan with the sharp single to left, Andrew Guillotte is around third to score and the Cowboys lead 1-nothing in the top of of the 1st.

Then Taylor Drake with the chopper to 3rd... But Aaron Olivas throws it away.

YOU DONE MESSED UP A-A-RON!

Chayse Marion scores and it's 2-nothing.

Then Skylar Barrentine skys the ball to right, that is deep enough. Sullivan comes home on the sacrifice fly and McNeese leads 3-nothing after one-half inning.

But Lamar comes right back. Garret Autrey with the inside out swing, two Cardinals come home and it's tied at 3 after 1.

But disaster strikes in the 3rd. Jude Vidrine grounds to short and Connor Lloyd can't come up with it. 2 runs come home, the Cardinals take a 6-3 lead.

And it just got worse from there. Lamar goes on to win 10-3 and the Cowboys' season comes to a disappointing end.
