The McNeese Cowboys gave up six first-inning runs but runners left on base thwarted attempts at a Cowboy comeback last night in J.C. Love Field at Louisiana Tech.

McNeese now 15-14, 3-6 SLC, fell behind in the first frame when the Bulldogs jumped up with four hits, one a grand slam to go up 6-0 after the first.

The Cowboys fought back over the innings with four runs but Tech slammed the door in the seventh adding four more to the final 10-4.
