It was Breezy in the Big Easy as Lions Beat UNO

In weather more suited for an early season February game the SLU Lions beat the UNO Privateers 9-1 at Maestri Field in New Orleans Tuesday night.  With a steady 30 mph wind blowing in from left field and the temps in the low 50's the Lions were able to come up big in the 7th inning by putting five runs on the board.  Jacob Fisher led the way for the Lions going 2-3 with 2 RBI and breaking the ice (yes it was cold out there) with a RBI single up the middle scoring pinch runner Alex Marse for the Lions first run.

Jordan Hymel, Jason Greenleaf, and Dylan Hills combined to surrender one run and only four hits as they struck out eight Privateers. With the win SLU moves to 31-16 on the season and sweeps the four game series with UNO.
