After the win against Louisiana Tech on Tuesday, head coach Michael Federico said that sometimes the team needs to stop and enjoy the view.
Snapping a seven-game losing streak looks pretty good.
ULM ended a seven-game losing streak and got their first road win of the season in a tough game against the Bulldogs, 9-4. The Warhawks followed that up the next night with a 10-1 blowout of Jackson State.
“We’re in an uphill battle,” Federico said. “On that climb of that mountain that we’re trying to get to, we just have to stop and enjoy the view sometimes.”
Louisiana Tech jumped out to a 3-0 lead early in the game. ULM had a tough time of it until the sixth inning. Andrew Beesley made it to third and Ryan Humeniuk made it to first before Blake Buckman blasted a three-run home to tie the game.
The Warhawks didn’t let off the gas and handily defeated the Bulldogs.
Cole Gray, Cole Martin and Kolton Childress all took to the mound for ULM and each were able to throw three strikeouts.
The next night, the Warhawks were ready to blow the gates wide open. And that’s exactly what they did.
ULM was able to score in the first and third innings to jump out to a 2-0 lead. However, in the fourth inning, the Warhawks couldn’t be stopped.
ULM scored eight runs in the fourth inning and destroyed Jackson State’s confidence. However, the Warhawks wouldn’t score another run in the game.
“I thought we had some productivity at the bats throughout the lineup that just kept turning it over a little bit,” Federico said.
Landon Longsworth picked up the win on the mound. Chad Bell had three hits with three RBIs. Bell also had two solo home runs.
Trent Tinglestad extended his hitting streak to a season-high eight games with two hits and a RBI. Colin Gordon had two hits and three RBIs while Humeniuk also had two hits and a RBI.
The Warhawks also started a series against Georgia Southern on Friday. A high scoring game ended in agony for ULM when they lost, 9-8. However, the Warhawks pulled out the victory on Saturday, 4-2.
ULM now sits at 10-17 on the season and 1-7 in Sun Belt play.
