No matter what the result will be Sunday, ULM will lose the series against Coastal Carolina.

ULM was unable to get a win in two games Friday and Saturday and look to bounce back next week.

On Friday, the Chanticleers were the victors 14-4.

ULM allowed 13 hits including three home runs to open the series.

Twelve walks were given out by the pitching crew, seven of those allowed on base earned runs.

The Warhawks came out swinging with back-to-back doubles by Johnny DeLaCruz and Braedon Barret.

The doubles led to a 2 nothing lead for the road team.

Chase Beal was able to get out of a bases-loaded jam early on in the game, but that was his only good play of the game. Coastal scored the game’s next 10 runs including six during the bottom of the second inning.

ULM cut the deficit to 10-4, however, the Hawks gave up four more runs after this point.

Saturday’s game was more of the same as the home team continued to put the pressure on ULM.

Once again ULM was able to jump out to a two-run lead in the early going.

Barret and Chad Bell were both walked and earned runs helped by a throwing error. At the end of two innings, ULM held a 2-1 lead and looked sharp.

The story remained the same though with Coastal Carolina taking off after the second inning.

They were able to score nine straight runs, taking a commanding 11-2 lead into the eight. ULM managed two more runs and lost 11-4.

ULM struggled both games with the same problems.

Starting off good early is not one of them as they scored right away both games.

However, both games the bottom fell out and Coastal Carolina went on huge runs to seal both victories.

ULM looks to turn things around on Tuesday May, 1 when the face I20 rival  Grambling State. The game is scheduled to start at 6 p.m.
