Privateers Go to 2-0 in SLC Tourney

The Privateers got solid pitching and just enough offense to squeak by Northwestern State on Thursday evening in Lake Charles, 4-3.

Starting pitcher Tyler LeBlanc gave New Orleans five solid innings, and Caleb Seroski delivered an outstanding outing in relief to get UNO within three outs of victory.  But Seroski ran into trouble in the ninth, and it was Nolan Daniel who was able to come in and shut the door on the Demons.

Kasten Furr delivered the go-ahead single in the sixth to break a 2-2 tie.  Furr had two hits along with Jorge Tejeda and Anthony Herron, Jr.

The Privateers (35-22) face Nicholls in a critical winner's bracket game at 11 a.m. tomorrow.  The winner will sit out the remainder of Friday, while the loser will have to turn around and beat McNeese, then win twice on Saturday.
