Techsters sweep past NMSU
Michelle Jones and Janna Frandrup recorded impressive complete-game performances on the circle and Louisiana Tech University hit three home runs in a doubleheader sweep of defending Western Athletic Conference champion New Mexico State Saturday.
Tech (18-19, 5-3 WAC) won the first game 4-0 and then came back to win the nightcap 5-1, sweeping the three-game series from the Aggies after prevailing 6-2 in Friday’s opener. Tech is now in a two-way tie for fourth place in the highly competitive Western Athletic Conference.
Jones took the ball in the first game and controlled New Mexico State’s offense the entire afternoon, limiting the Aggies to only three hits and three walks while striking out three in her third shutout of the season.
