It was another offensive clinic for Louisiana Tech on Tuesday night as the Diamond ‘Dogs pushed across 15 runs in a 15-1 victory over Grambling State (7-10) at J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park.
“Offensively, we had a great night,” said Tech coach Lane Burroughs. “There were quality at-bats all over the place. We only had three punchouts and nine walks and any time you do that, you are going to have a chance to win the ball game. I thought we ran the bases tonight better than we have all year. We knew where their outfielders were and were able to take extra bases.”
