The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor baseball team battled back from an early deficit and then held off Louisiana College's late rally attempt as the Cru posted a 6-3 victory over the Wildcats Saturday afternoon in Pineville, Louisiana. The victory completes a sweep of the three-game series for UMHB.

Louisiana College put up two runs in the bottom of the first to grab a 2-0 lead, but the Cru answered with three runs in the top of the second. Ty Johnson scored the first run on a throwing error, Caleb Davis added an RBI groundout and Emery Atkisson's sacrifice fly gave UMHB a 3-2 lead. The Wildcats tied the game on Duncan Cornfoot's RBI single in the bottom of that inning. The Cru retook the lead on another Atkisson sacrifice fly in the top of the fourth, Robbie Gillen's sacrifice fly stretched it to 5-3 UMHB in the top of the seventh and Johnson blasted a solo homer in the top of the eighth to make it 6-3. Louisiana College loaded the bases in the bottom of the eighth, but Tyler Nelson ended the threat with a strikeout. A single and a walk brought the tying run to the plate in the bottom of the ninth, but Aaron Barteau ended that threat with another strikeout to preserve the victory.

Braden McMahan earned the win for the Cru to move to 2-1 on the season in relief of Evan Samoff. Barteau notched his 13th save of the year. Mark Frankhouser led UMHB with three hits and Walt Aldridge had two of the Wildcats' eight hits in the game. Charlie Waddington took the loss for LC to fall to 5-3 on the season.

The Cru closes out the regular season with a 22-16 overall record and a 16-8 mark in American Southwest Conference play. Louisiana College finishes at 19-20 overall and 9-15 in the ASC on the year. UMHB will now advance to the ASC Championship Tournament next weekend. UMHB will play in the four-team bracket hosted by U.T. Tyler and will open play on Friday. The ASC Tournament bracket will be released on Sunday.
