Lopez Ties SLC Record as Lions Beat USA

In their 8th straight road game the Lions beat South Alabama 6-3 on Tuesday night to move to 31-15 on the season and Stefan Lopez tied the Southland Conference career saves record picking up career save number 27.  SLU had a strong finish on the road trip coming away with a 5-3 record, as they beat the Jaguars for the 3rd straight time.

Playing their last mid-week game of the season the Lions put up nine hits and capitalized on three USA miscues.  Josh Janway picked up the win, as Tanner Rainey, Matt Pittari, Dylan Hills, and Lopez saw action out of the bullpen.

With his next save Lopez will have sole possession of the SLC career saves record and will tie Luke Prihoda, formerly of Sam Houston State, for the SLC single season record with 18.
