Cajuns Put The Bite On Gators

By  | 

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Louisiana-Lafayette might be a bit off the
beaten path in the college sports landscape. However, it felt like
home to Ashley Brignac.
And after leading the Ragin' Cajuns to a big-time upset in her
Women's College World Series debut, Brignac has Lafayette back on
the map.
Brignac (31-6) struck out a career-high 15 batters and Holly
Tankersley hit a solo home run as the Ragin' Cajuns upset
top-seeded Florida 3-2.
The Ragin' Cajuns advance to face fifth-seeded Texas A&M (55-7),
which beat Virginia Tech 1-0.
The only run came in the sixth inning, when third baseman
Charisse Mariconda threw wildly to first on Megan Gibson's
grounder, allowing pinch-runner Andrea Tovar to score from second.
Gibson (39-1) threw a five-hit shutout and pitched around two
Aggies errors.
Angela Tincher (38-9), the national player of the year, struck
out nine and allowed only two hits for unseeded Virginia Tech
