ALEXANDRIA, La. - No. 18 UHV dropped both games of Saturday's doubleheader Saturday against No. 22 LSU-Alexandria in a Red River Athletic Conference battle.
The Generals (24-6, 7-1) rallied from a four-run deficit to win Game 1 5-4 and 4-3 in the night cap.
The Jaguars (14-10, 7-5) struck for four runs in the second inning of the opening game behind a sacrifice fly from Torey Dumont, an RBI single by Michelle Revels and a pair of LSUA errors.
The Generals answered with a pair of runs in the fifth and three more in the sixth to claim the win.
LSUA broke through with a four-run fourth and then fought to hold off the Jaguars after UHV struck back with three runs in the fifth.
After Gabby Davila walked and Revels singled to left, Aubri Hockenbury hit her third home run of the series, a three-run shot to left on a 0-1 count.
But that would be all the Jaguars would muster the rest of the way against the Generals.
The Jaguars return home to host Texas Southern in non-conference play on Tuesday with a doubleheader beginning at 4 p.m. at the Victoria Youth Sports Complex.
