NEW ORLEANS – Delgado took both of Saturday’s conference matchups over Baton Rouge Community College, defeating the Bears 7-2 and 4-1 at Kirsch-Rooney Stadium.

In the bottom of the inning, Brayden Caskey reached on a single, advanced on a pitcher’s error, and scored on a single by Jacob Singletary to tie the game. In the third, Delgado combined for six runs, including two runs on back-to-back two out singles by Cade Pregeant and Jacob Fury.

The 7-1 lead carried to the sixth when a second Baton Rouge run crossed the plate on an infield groundout. Cory Cook picked up the win, pitching into the seventh inning before Kaile Levatino closed the game and Delgado’s 7-2 win.

In game two, all of the Dolphins’ runs came in the first inning. Michael Stutes reached on a fielder’s choice and advanced on a single by Ethan Lege. Lane LeBlanc walked to load the bases before Josh Alexander’s single plated Stutes. Lege scored on a passed ball for the second run before Cade Pregeant reached on a two out infield error that allowed LeBlanc and Alexander to score as Delgado took a 4-0 lead. The score carried to the fifth when Braden Keen reached on a leadoff single and scored on a single by Grant Landry for Baton Rouge’s sole run of the game before Delgado’s 4-1 victory. Delgado starter Carson Lore went the distance, holding the Bears to four hits, one run, one walk, and five strikeouts.
