Recap |  Final Stats

RUSTON, La. - LA Tech defeated Southeastern Louisiana, 2-1, Sunday in extra innings for its first win of the 2014 season.

Post-Game Notes

• With the win today, Louisiana Tech broke a five-game losing streak, which dated back to the last season when UTSA defeated the Bulldogs in the final three games of the 2013 season.

• After playing just one extra inning game in 2013, the Bulldogs have already forced extra innings in two of the three games the team has played this season. LA Tech is now 1-1 in extra-inning contests in 2014.

B.J. Findley received his first career start in a Bulldog uniform as the designated hitter today against the Lions. After a perfect 2-for-2 performance at the plate as a substitute in yesterday's game, the freshman was 3-for-6 on the weekend after recording a bunt single in the win today.

• Junior third baseman Taylor Nichols was 2-for-5 Sunday with a run scored. Nichols started all three games at third base for the Bulldogs this weekend and ended the series with three base hits, including a double today versus Southeastern.

Laetten Galbraith threw five innings in relief Sunday, which is a career high for the junior right hander. In 5.0 innings pitched, Galbraith shut down the Lions' offense, allowing just one run off three hits and striking out three to earn the win for the Bulldogs. Three strikeouts in today's game is also a career high for Galbraith.

• Senior right hander Richie Navari started the game and earned a no decision after shutting out the Lions for five innings of two-hit baseball. Navari walked just one batter and struck out two to help lead the Bulldogs to victory.



• Senior first baseman Tyler Ervine was 2-for-2 with a run scored and reached base in all five plate appearances with three walks on the day.

• The last time the Bulldogs won in walk-off fashion dates back to May 4, 2012 when LA Tech defeated San Jose State, 4-3, at home.
