For the second night the Northwestern State Demons picked up timely hits and held the SLU offense in check, as they won a critical Southland Conference series with a 8-4 win over the Lions. With the win the Demons now lead SLU by a half game. With Texas State’s 6-0 loss to Texas-Arlington, the Lions are still sitting one game behind the Bobcats.
