Lafayette, La. – The Acadiana Cane Cutters lose in a close matchup against the San Antonio Flying Chanclas 2-5. The Cane Cutters were able to keep the game close for the first 7 innings, as the game was tied 1-1 until the bottom of the 8th when the Flying Chanclas racked up 4 runs. Acadiana was able to score another run in the top of the 9th when Matt Abshire (Panola College) hit a home run, but it ultimately was not enough to bring the Cutters to the bottom of the 9th. The Cane Cutters still hold 2nd place in the TCL, but will have to fight hard to keep it with the Brazos Valley Bombers close behind them in 3rd. Acadiana will attempt to get things back on the right track tomorrow in Amarillo against the Sod Squad.
Matt Abshire had a great game tonight against San Antonio, as he was responsible for helping the Cane Cutters get each of their 2 runs with 1 home run and 1 RBI on 2 hits. Abshire’s batting average is .545 through 3 games played this summer with the Cane Cutters. Logan McLeod (Louisiana Tech) was able score a run off of 2 hits on the night against the Flying Chanclas. Cole McConnell (Louisiana Tech) was also able get 2 hits tonight with one of them being a double.
The Cane Cutters once again go throughout the night with minimal pitching changes as Josh Mancuso (Nicholls State) and Cole Payne (Temple College) were the only 2 Cane Cutters to see the mound tonight. Mancuso finished the night with a total of 7 innings pitched and racked up 6 strikeouts against San Antonio. Overall the Cane Cutters had a good night on the mound and will look to bounce back against Amarillo in tomorrow’s matchup.
