Privateers Top Tulane in Midweek Contest

In a tuneup preceding a home conference series over the weekend, New Orleans (17-13), powered by a seven-run fourth inning, bested crosstown rival Tulane 9-5 at Maestri Field.

After surrendering two runs to the Wave in the top of the fourth, the Privateers tied the game in the bottom of the frame, then went ahead on a three-run blast by increasingly important sub Chase Crump, tonight's DH.  Later in the inning, Aaron Palmer's two-run single put UNO up 7-2, and the home team held off a Tulane semi-rally to prevail.

In what will be the last home weekend for New Orleans until Houston Baptist visits from May 5-7, the Privateers will host the Lamar Cardinals, who come to Maestri Field with a 4-7 mark in the Southland Conference.
