Pilots Blast Badgers in Saturday's Doubleheader
March 07, 2009
Shreveport, La. – The No. 10 LSUS Pilots started off their weekend series versus the Spring Hill Badgers with a bang, picking up a pair of wins in Saturday’s doubleheader at Pilot Field. Andrew Brouillette led the Pilots offensively, going 7-for-8 at the plate on the afternoon with a homerun and eight RBIs.
Game One – LSUS 14, Spring Hill 5
Andrew Brouillette, Quinton Shamsabady and Brent Lavallee combined to go 8-for-12 with two homeruns, two doubles and eight RBIs to lead the Pilots’ offense in the first game of the doubleheader.
Brouillette led the team with a 4-for-5 performance in game one, while Shamsabady and Lavallee each homered and drove in a team-high three runs. Lavallee’s homerun was his team-leading 11th on the season and increased his NAIA-leading RBI total to 48.
John James recorded his NAIA-leading 7th win of the season, and looked very solid on the mound after a shaky start to begin the game. The Badgers put five runs on the board off the LSUS starter in the first inning, but James would not allow another run over the next four frames.
Freshman Kory Kottenbrook closed the game out on the mound for the Pilots, giving up just one hit over two innings while striking out four Badgers.
Bubba Jordan doubled and drove in two runs, and Andrew Blubaugh also knocked in three runs for the home team.
LSUS scored in every inning but the bottom of the sixth, as they cruised to an easy 14-5 victory.
Game Two – LSUS 14, Spring Hill 2
Bubba Jordan homered twice and drove in four runs, and Andrew Brouillette homered and knocked in six runs as LSUS run-ruled the Badgers 14-3 in the second game of Saturday’s doubleheader.
Jordan and Brouillette were a combined 6-for-6 for the game with three double, three homers, and nine runs driven in between the two of them.
Justin Ennis (5-0) earned his fifth win of the season, while allowing just two runs over six innings.
Brandon Bravata and Andrew Blubaugh also recorded multiple hits for the home team in the second game, while Jeffrey Garidel doubled and knocked in two runners in one of his two plate appearances in the game.
LSUS pounded out 11 hits as a team and scored a run in every inning, as they picked up their second easy victory of the day.
The two teams will meet again at Pilot Field on Sunday afternoon with the game scheduled to begin at 12:00 P.M., one hour earlier than the original start date.
