April 03, 2011
RUSTON, La. - The no. 8 LSU Shreveport Pilots baseball team could not get the offense going in a 6-0 loss to the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs on Sunday afternoon at J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park.
LSUS (30-10) could not solve the puzzle of Tech's Mike Jefferson and Caleb Dudley as they combined to strike out the NAIA's top offense 14 times in the series finale. Jefferson (2-1) picked up the win and fanned seven in five innings of work. He allowed the Pilots three hits and walked three. Dudley earned his fifth save of the season with two walks and seven strike outs in the final four innings of relief and only allowed one hit.
Jared Mortensen (5-1) took the loss for the Pilots as Tech scored six runs, four earned, in four an 1/3.
The Bulldogs (15-12) scored two runs in the second, three in the fourth and one in the fifth to earn their fifth game in a row.
The Pilots now with a two-game losing streak will play the LSUA Generals on the road in a double header Tuesday beginning at 4:00 p.m.
