Privateers Split Sunday DH with Southern

In the first game of Sunday's doubleheader at Maestri Field, the Privateers (1-1) fell to Southern 4-3.

Down by one run, New Orleans was unable to capitalize on a leadoff triple in the 8th by Gaige Howard or a leadoff double in the 9th by Salo Iza.  Both of those threats ended with three consecutive outs.

In game two, UNO flew out of the gate with a five-run first, capped by a three-run homer from Houston transfer Blake Way.  The Privateers rode that all the way to a 6-3 victory, using a bullpen game highlighted by winning redshirt freshman pitcher Austin Acree's three scoreless innings.
