Today's game also marked the end of Terry Burrows' tenure as Cowboys head coach.
Just about two hours ago, McNeese State announced that Burrows has resigned as head baseball coach, effective immediately.
Burrows had been the head coach at McNeese since 2008, his third time in a Cowboys uniform.
He was a star pitcher for McNeese State for two years, earning Southland Conference pitcher of the year honors in 1990 before being drafted by the Texas Rangers.
After an 11-year career in the majors, Burrows spent two years as a McNeese assistant, then went on to become head coach at St. Louis Catholic before returning to the Cowboys as head coach 6 years ago.
He was inducted into the McNeese State athletic hall of fame in 2009.
Burrows won 138 games as the Cowboys' head coach but finished a disappointing 23-and-31 this year.
