BATON ROUGE — No. 10-ranked Louisiana-Lafayette and Mother Nature combined to break No. 1-ranked LSU’s 34-game winning streak against in-state opponents Tuesday night with a 4-1 rain-shortened victory over the Tigers.
The game was halted by rain in the top of the sixth right after the 10th-ranked Ragin’ Cajuns added their fourth run of the game with one out.
After a delay of almost 70 minutes with no let up in sight, the game was ruled official.
LSU (7-1) will host Yale in a three-game weekend series beginning Friday, while the Cajuns (8-1) travel to another Southeastern Conference stadium to play a weekend series against Alabama.
ULL’s Greg Milhorn (2-0) picked up the win by holding the Tigers to four hits while walking two.
LSU left-hander Cody Glenn (1-1) took the loss, allowing five hits in four innings while allowing three of the Cajuns’ runs.
The Cajuns broke through with two runs in the top of the third when No. 9 hitter Greg Davis drew a walk off Glenn to lead off the inning and scored on Seth Harrison’s triple to center field.
Shortstop Blake Trahan of Kinder got Harrison home on a sacrifice fly for a 2-0 lead.
ULL added a run in the fourth when Michael Stentz led off with a single, was sacrificed the second and later scored on a two-out, bad-hop single past third base.
LSU’s lone run came after Andrew Stevenson led off the bottom of the fifth with a triple and scored on Tyler Moore’s sacrifice fly.
The Tigers squandered an opportunity in the fourth when Kramer Robertson, breaking from second base, ran through a coach’s stop sign at third base on what would have been a single to deep shortstop and was easily thrown out to end the inning.
The Cajuns’ final run came just before the skies opened up in the sixth when Ryan Wilson led off with a single and later scored on an error by LSU second baseman Kramer Robertson.
