MONROE, La. – After piling on 26 runs on 25 hits on Saturday, the ULM baseball team needed just four solo home runs on Sunday to defeat Illinois State and take the weekend series with a 4-2 win at Warhawk Field.
ULM still had 12 hits on the final day of the series, but only four of the 12 hits mattered. ULM scored all four of its runs on solo homers across the fourth and fifth innings. Three Warhawk pitchers made the homers stand up, as ULM bounced back from a Friday night loss to win on Saturday and Sunday and take the series, 2-1, over the Redbirds.
