McNeese Sweeps Sinking Privateers

Sam Capielano collected six
hits over the weekend
The Privateers (18-14, 4-8) lost their seventh consecutive conference game, getting ten-run-ruled at Maestri Field by McNeese on Sunday, 13-3.  This followed a 6-1 loss on Friday and a 7-3 loss on Saturday to the Cowboys. New Orleans has lost nine of its last 11 overall.

On Friday, the Bucs were shut down by McNeese ace Kaleb Fontenot to lose the opener.  On Saturday, the UNO offensive struggles continued as they left 12 on base, notching 13 hits but just one extra base hit in the 7-3 defeat.  On Sunday, Privateer pitching (starter Brian Warzek and reliever Daniel Martinez) surrendered six runs in the top of the first en route to the blowout eight-inning loss.

New Orleans will play a non-conference tilt with Louisiana-Lafayette on Wednesday at Maestri Field before returning to home conference action on Friday night against the Northwestern State Demons.
