Cooke Twirls Gem as Baseball Clinches Series Against Arkansas State

LAFAYETTE - Behind complete game, two-hit shutout, Louisiana cruised to a 9-0 victory over Arkansas State, clinching the Sun Belt Conference series at M.L. 'Tigue' Moore Field at Russo Park on Saturday afternoon.

Cooke's complete game, two-hit shutout is the first thrown by a Louisiana pitcher since Carson Baranik against Arkansas State on May 3, 2014, while the 12 strikeouts by Cooke tied for the second-most among pitchers who have thrown a two-hit complete game shutout in school history.

Louisiana collected nine hits on the day, eight of which came from eight starting players.
