Elimination from the Sun Belt Conference tournament was in play for the Texas State baseball team in its second semifinal game.
Louisiana-Lafayette went up 2-0 in the first inning and the Ragin’ Cajuns never lost the lead in their 6-2 victory. Texas State’s season is over.
The Bobcats started Lucas Humpal, junior pitcher, on the mound and he responded by keeping the game in reach after the Ragin’ Cajuns jumped out to the lead.
Humpal finished the game pitching 7.1 innings while giving up five runs and six hits. Humpal recorded the loss and he will finish 2015 with a 5-7 record.
Humpal was voted the Sun Belt Conference Preseason Pitcher of the Year and Texas State has had Humpal pitch in a lot of big games this season, including Saturday.
