The Mississippi State Bulldogs may have torn into ULM (13-18, 4-7 SBC) on Wednesday, but that didn’t stop the Warhawks as they rolled into Atlanta on Friday ready for a win.
Coming into the series against Georgia State, ULM had won four of the last six games and looked to continue winning.
“I thought coach Collins had our guys prepared,” said Michael Federico, head coach.
Andrew Beesley started the night off great for the Warhawks when he hit a two-run home run in the first inning. Trent Tingelstad added a two-RBI triple and Chad Bell added on runs with a two-run home run of his own during the second inning to give ULM a 6-0 lead.
Georgia State was able to battle back from the early hole to cut ULM’s lead to only three. However, in the fifth inning, ULM was able to load the bases with no outs. Logan Wurm headed to the plate late in the inning and grabbed an RBI to cap off the five-run inning. The Warhawks took the lead, 11-3.
ULM never let off the gas and cruised to a smooth 16-8 win. Tingelstad ended the night 3-of-4 at the plate with four runs and two RBIs.
Beesley went 3-for-5 at bat with three runs and two RBIs. Wurm and Joey Jordan combined for three runs and Wurm also had two RBIs.
Trey Jeans pitched a little over six innings for the Warhawks with three strikeouts and two walks. Justin Barton ended the night pitching and got four strikeouts.
ULM took to the field again on Saturday for the second game against the Panthers.
Jordan took to the plate during the second inning and grabbed a two-RBI double and Bell added another RBI for the Warhawks to take a 3-0 lead.
ULM held the lead until the third inning when Georgia State gained three runs to tie the game.
Another run wouldn’t be scored until the sixth inning when Bell added two more RBIs. The Warhawks ran away with the game and won 10-3.
ULM will come home on Tuesday before going on the road to Appalachian State.
