LSU Eunice Baseball Wins National Championship On Walk Off
LSU Eunice just won a National Championship in the best way possible.
LSUE first baseman Slate Fuller’s two run walk off home run with two strikes and two outs resulted in LSU Eunice winning its sixth national title in school history. The LSUE Bengals defeated Parkland 5-3 to win the Division 2 Junior College National Championship.
Benton High School alumni Cameron Horton was 1 for 2 with 2 walks in the game, and was a major contributor to the team this season. Former Airline High pitcher (and also former Ole Miss pitcher) Andrew Lowe contributed out of the Bengals bullpen this season as well.
Back to last night's game, pitcher Zach Hester struck out nine through eight innings. Koi Westbrook hit a single in the eighth inning to tie the game at 3-3, then in the ninth, it was the Slate Fuller show, as he got a hold of a pitch and crushed it over the fence to seal the deal.
