The Texas Marshals return to Acadiana for another two-game series with the Cane Cutters at Fabacher Field.
Texas Marshals (8-16) at Acadiana Cane Cutters (11-13)
Thursday June 27, 2013 - 7:00 PM

After a 1-1 series split against the Woodlands Strykers, the Acadiana Cane Cutters are on their way back from their road trip to host a two-game set against the Texas Marshals on Thursday and Friday, June 27th and 28th. Acadiana took the first game from the Strykers 7-2 Tuesday, after big nights from Warstic and Texas Collegiate League Player of the Week Mitchell Nau and starting pitcher Jake Winston. Wednesday night’s game would not go the Cane Cutters’ way, however, as they dropped the second game of the series 6-2.
Acadiana comes into tonight’s home series with an 11-13 record, good enough for third place in the Texas Collegiate League. Texas A&M catcher Mitchell Nau played well during the first game against the Strykers, going 2-for-4 with an RBI. Nau will need to impose his will on Marshals pitchers in order for the Cane Cutters to get a couple of wins at Fabacher Field over the next two games. Alabama utility infielder Chance Vincent will also look to extend his four-game hit streak from the fourth spot in the lineup. If the Cane Cutters can get runners on the base paths in front of Nau and Vincent, Acadiana will have an excellent shot at putting up some very crooked numbers here at Fabacher. Couple that with continued success on the pitcher’s mound, and the Cane Cutters will continue to be a tough team to beat.
The Texas Marshals (8-16) are coming off of a series split of their own against the Victoria Generals after responding to a game one loss with an 8-5 win last night. Marshals' starting pitchers Keaton Brewer and Seth Holbert were mostly unable to keep runners off the bags during their outings, as they pitched for a combined 10 innings, giving up 11 earned runs on 18 hits and 3 walks. Catcher Chabrielle Pizzarro went 4-or-10 in the series, picking up 2 runs and 1 RBI, including a double. Marshals’ shortstop Taylor Munden had a big series as well, going 4-for-9 at the plate with 2 RBIs, 1 run scored, and a double. With a patient approach at the plate tonight and tomorrow, the Cane Cutters should get runners on base and score some runs on a struggling pitching staff.
