SHREVEPORT, La (KMSS/KTAL) – The LSU-Shreveport Pilots are one of the hottest teams in collegiate baseball and are surging at the perfect time, closing the regular season with a dominant sweep of in-state rival LSU-Alexandria today at Pilot Field.
The Pilots scored 27 runs and allowed just 5 throughout the two games. They wrap up the regular season with a 14-game winning streak and are winners of 23 of their final 24.
LSUS did come up just short of a Red River Athletic Conference regular-season championship. Their 20-5 conference record puts them half a game behind regular-season champion Our Lady of the Lake who finished with a record of 20-4.
The Pilots are the 2-seed in this weekend’s RRAC baseball tournament. They will face the University of the Southwest in their tournament opener at noon on Friday at Pilot Field
