Cedotal Flirts with No-No
Southeastern junior left-hander Kyle Cedotal of Denham Springs flirted with a no-hitter for six-innings yesterday at home before finishing with a complete-game two-hitter in an 11-0 victory by the Lions over Southland Conference foe Abilene Christian. The game was called after seven innings. Cedotal (2-1) finished with a two-hitter, registering a career-high 14 strikeouts. Cedotal was efficient, throwing just 77 pitches, including 56 strikes. Kennon Menard went 2-for-3 with two runs batted in and scored twice. Jacob Seward added two hits with two runs scored and drove in a run, while Kevin Carr added two hits and scored once. Former Northshore High grad, catcher Chris Eades, delivered a run scoring single in the second inning to tally the Lions’ first run. Eades, who graduated from Delgado Community College, before heading to Southeastern, was recently named to the 2015 Johnny Bench Award Watch List.
Southeastern improved to 15-6 overall and is 4-2 in Southland Conference play. Abilene Christian (2-13) slipped to 2-4 in Southland play.
