ALEXANDRIA, La. – It was a battle of the top teams in the Red River Athletic Conference on Saturday as the 22nd-ranked LSU-Alexandria Generals captured two one-run victories over the 18th-ranked University of Houston-Victoria Jaguars.
The Generals (24-6, 7-1 RRAC) rallied from a four-run deficit to win Game 1 with a 5-4 victory and then held off a late Jaguars (14-10, 7-5 RRAC) rally in the nightcap for a 4-3 victory to take the four-game series three games to one.
UHV struck for four runs in the second inning of the opening game behind a sacrifice fly from Torey Dumont (SO/Pleasanton, TX), an RBI single by Michelle Revels (SO/Corpus Christi, TX) and a pair of LSUA errors.
The Generals would answer with a pair of runs in the fifth and three more in the sixth to claim the win.
LSUA broke through with a four-run fourth and then fought to hold off the Jaguars after UHV struck back with three runs in the fifth.
But that would be all the Jaguars would muster the rest of the way against the Generals.
The Jaguars return home to host Texas Southern in non-conference play on Tuesday with a doubleheader beginning at 4 p.m. at the Victoria Youth Sports Complex.
