With a no-hitter through six innings going, UL coach Matt Deggs rode former TCU pitcher Spencer Arrighetti longer than planned against Louisiana Tech on Tuesday night – leaving Deggs plenty of available arms when the Ragin’ Cajuns face LSU. Arrighetti worked 6.2 innings and struck out nine in the Cajuns’ 2-0 home-opening win. That gives Deggs options when UL (3-1) plays host to No.
Ellis gave way to reliever Cade Hodges in the seventh, who inherited a runner on third from Ellis following a leadoff double from Drake Osborn and a successful sacrifice bunt from Brett Borgogno.

Hodges proceeded to punch out the next two hitters swinging to conclude the inning.
