The McNeese State Cowboys broke out the brooms at home this weekend. The sweep of Incarnate Word left the Cowboys just two games behind league leader Nicholls State.

Yesterday's finish was one of the Cowboys most exciting finishes ever. It all started with the Cowboys down 3 runs (6-3) when the bottom dropped out of the sky. That resulted in a ninety minute rain delay. The Cowboys scored 2 two out runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to tie the game then won in the tenth. That completed the weekend sweep that left the Cowboys 23-19 on the season and 13-8 in league play.

If you have not been a part of this year's Cowboy Baseball season you are really missing out. The Pokes host Southern for "School Field Trip Day" this Wednesday. It's a "businessman's special" with the first pitch at noon.
