in
Davis, OK.jpg

God, I give you fair warning.
When Mike Reed shows up at the pearly gates any day now, be prepared for the best handshake since John Wayne.

Although the Bulldog bats eventually came to life in the eighth inning, the deficit was too much to overcome as Louisiana Tech fell to Southeastern Louisiana, 15-6, Saturday in the second game of the weekend series at J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park.
