BOCA RATON, Fla. – The Louisiana Tech baseball team maintained its status as the hottest team in the nation, winning its 10th consecutive game and clinching the weekend series over Florida Atlantic behind a 2-1 win on Saturday afternoon from FAU Baseball Stadium.

LA Tech (24-10, 10-4 C-USA) extended its winning streak to double digits for the first time since the 2007 season, while claiming its seventh consecutive Conference USA road series win dating back to last season. The Bulldogs handed FAU (23-11, 11-3 C-USA) its first C-USA series loss of the year.

“I’m so proud of our guys for hanging in there against a rally good arm today,” head coach Lane Burroughs said. “We held the course and stuck with it. Very proud of Logan Robbins for working out of some tough jams. I thought David Leal was as sharp as he’s been all year – he looked like the David Leal from last year. Seth White got the big triple down the line and proved to be the difference in the game – proud of the at-bats he’s been putting together.”

Since beginning its league slate with a sweep vs. Southern Miss, the Bulldogs have rattled of 10 wins in their last 11 conference games.

Tech received a two-out RBI triple from Seth White in the second inning, and the Tech pitching staff held the rope the rest of the way, as starter Logan Robbins (4-2) and relievers David Leal and Braxton Smith held FAU to just one run on four hits on the afternoon.

Robbins was solid in picking up his fourth win of the year, pitching into the sixth inning (5.2 innings pitched), while allowing just two hits. The left-hander walked three and struck out three, and held the Owls scoreless across his 86 pitches.

The Bulldogs will look to complete the weekend sweep of the Owls on Sunday with a first pitch set for 11 a.m. CDT from Boca Raton. Tech is slated to throw left-hander Logan Bailey, while FAU will counter with right-hander Jon Jon Kostantis.

ULM: At Boone, N.C., Appalachian State used two big innings, scoring five runs in the sixth inning and five more in the eighth, to rally past ULM on Saturday 10-8 in the first game of a scheduled doubleheader Saturday at Beaver Field at Smith Stadium. The second game was suspended when fog rolled in with ULM leading 3-1 in the top of the third inning.

The first game featured two rain delays and a 20-minute delay as umpires deliberated on an interference call.

ULM (15-20 overall, 5-9 Sun Belt) took the initial lead on back-to-back RBI doubles by Joey Jordan and Trent Tingelstad in the third inning to go up 2-0. Tingelstad limped into second base and left the game with an apparent injury. ULM made it 3-0 in the third inning when Logan Wurm’s single drove in Ryan Humeniuk.
