Six scoreless innings from starting pitcher Drew Granier and a pair of big innings from ULM hitters were enough Friday night to give the Warhawks a 10-2 victory over Mississippi Valley State.

ULM (3-4) made a successful home debut at Warhawk Field behind Granier’s effort. The right-hander allowed just two hits with three walks and five strikeouts before departing after the sixth inning with cramps. Granier’s outing was the longest of the season so far for ULM and earned him his first win as a Warhawk.

Stefan Comeaux allowed both MVSU runs on three hits in two innings of relief. Wil Browning pitched a flawless ninth in a non-save situation to finish the job.

"Truthfully, the guys who did well tonight have been doing well all year,” ULM coach Jeff Schexnaider said. “Drew’s been sold with all his starts, and Browning of course has been closing games.”

The Warhawks packaged 12 hits with 12 walks off Valley pitching. Starter David Brauhn (1-3) issued five walks and gave up five runs on six hits in his 4 1/3 inning stint.

Matt Laird collected three hits with two RBIs and Caleb Clowers had two hits with three RBIs and two runs scored for ULM. The Warhawks plated five runs in the fifth and four in the eighth.

“We needed that from the pitching staff and I was proud of the way the guys hit the ball the first four innings,” Schexnaider said. “We didn’t have anything to show but they kept swinging it and it enabled us to get a big inning.”
