    The Lamar Cardinals needed a win on Thursday to stay alive in the Southland Conference Baseball Tournament and they got just that.  

    First baseman Brayden Evans hit two home runs and had 4 RBI's as the Cardinals tallied 12 runs on 12 hits, eliminating the Demons from tournament play with a 12-5 victory.  

    River Orsak hit a solo homer in the sixth inning and finished the day 2-5 at the plate with a double.

    The game was essentially out of reach for the Demons in the second inning when Lamar put up eight runs against Northwester State pitcher Dawson Flowers.  

    The Cardinals will play next at 9:00 am on Friday against the winner of the UIW vs. McNeese game which takes place at 4:00 PM on Thursday.

    • Finding a quality replacement will be critical for the Cards.  Maintaining the quality of the pitching staff is very important.
    • They are at the top. If you win the Commissioner's Cup, you're at the top.  I think O'Malley's leadership is different. He has bigger plans but isn't going to go for hollow moves like the WAC departure where there were grand pronouncements to create an 11th FBS conference, but not actual plans. I trust his plans and that he's not going to vastly expand the budget w/o it being able to pay off.
    • Lamar left the SLC twice trying to move above the "dead weight" only to see them flop and move back to the SLC.  Long time Lamar fans have been disappointed by the Lamar athletic department for decades so I don't blame them for not showing up for events.  Schools like Nicholls and McNeese seem to be consistently better with smaller budgets than Lamar.  McNeese has taken the lead in rebuilding the conference.  We'll see if Lamar can actually get to the top and consistently stay there.
