NEW ORLEANS — Top-seeded Alabama State held on to defeat Grambling State in an extra-inning scorefest Monday as the Southwestern Athletic Conference Baseball Tournament opened play at the Urban Youth Academy’s Wesley Barrow Stadium.
It was a chess match of a game, as the Hornets led off the bottom of the 11th inning with a double by Richard Amion, who advanced to third base on a groundout. Grambling then intentionally walked a pair of batters before pitcher Issac O’Bear walked in the game-winning run that gave Alabama State the 11-10 victory.
The Lady Techsters put up eight runs on the number four team in the nation, but unfortunately that was not enough as Louisiana Tech fell to LSU, 30-8 on Tuesday night at the Lady Techster Softball Complex.
Fans packed into the bleachers and the hill beyond the right field wall, as Tech’s crowd of 1,927 in attendance was the most in Lady Techster Softball Complex history.
