Rebounding Privateers Win Seventh Straight

Hezekiah Randolph had four
hits and a home run on Tuesday
After a midseason slump that had them dropping near .500, the Privateers (25-15, 9-9) have rebounded with seven consecutive wins, the latest tonight over Southern by a 23-3 score in Baton Rouge.

Three different Privateers had four hits, and among those, Hezekiah Randolph and Preston Marsh homered in the onslaught.  Dakota Dean also blasted a round-tripper for UNO.

Over the weekend, New Orleans swept a road conference series at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi to give them five straight conference wins immediately on the heels of eight straight conference losses.

It will be a big week at Maestri Field, with the Bucs hosting nationally ranked Southern Mississippi on Wednesday before taking on Central Arkansas in the weekend's conference series.  UNO and UCA will be two of the teams fighting for the last few spots in the Southland Conference baseball tournament.
