It is the first signature win in the return to the dugout of UNO head coach Ron Maestri.
The Privateers scored three times in the 7th inning, and Darron McKigney came on the 9th to get his first save as New Orleans surprised top ranked Louisiana-Lafayette Tuesday night at Tigue Moore Field.
UNO won its 10th game of the season, ULL lost only its fourth game of the season to go along with 30 victories.
The Ragin Cajuns streak of 11 wins in a row against in-state opponents was snapped.
Jonathan Coco’s two run triple in the 7th gave UNO an 8-5 lead.
Caleb Adams was 4-4 for the Cajuns. He had a walk, a double, and a home run.
