BATON ROUGE, La. – Southern entered its eighth game of the 2021 season, but Friday was the first pitch at Lee-Hines field for the Jaguars this year. The Blue and Gold gave the home crowd a show to close out game one of the Jags’ series versus Grambling State.

The Jaguars answered with a two-run homer in the bottom of the frame, and Southern walked away with a 9-8 win.

The Jags continue the series against Grambling Saturday at 5 p.m.
