Cowboys Will Hunt For Easter Wins in Natchitoches This Weekend
The Cowboys versus The Demons on Easter Weekend. Let us hope our hometown heroes won't need Divine Intervention to put some SLC wins in their Easter baskets.
McNeese is in Natchitoches starting Thursday for a weekend SLC three game series with the Northwestern State Demons.
Cowboys Are Up Two
The Cowboys won the last two series, but are split in the last ten 5-5. McNeese lost a non-con game to Southeastern Tuesday night 12-3. In that game the Cowboys went to the bullpen quickly and often to save arms for this weekends series.
Game one is Thursday 6:30 pm, game two is Friday at 6:30 with the finale on Saturday at 2 pm. The Southland Conference does not allow play on Easter Sunday.
Jr 2nd baseman Nate Fisbeck leads the team with a .311 average, 11 doubles a triple, seven homers and 26 RBIs.
Jr utility-man Jake Dickerson has been strong at the plate too hitting .311 with six doubles, a homer, 22 RBIs and a terror on the base-paths with nine stolen.
On the rubber Jonathon Ellison the Jr right-hander has a team low 2.48 ERA and a 2-2 record in 36.1 innings pitched.
