Delgado traveled to Baton Rouge on Saturday for a Region XXIII conference doubleheader against Baton Rouge Community College at Pete Goldsby Field.

Trailing 6-5 with two outs in the seventh inning of game two, Giovanni Licciardi reached base as a hit batter. He advanced on back-to-back singles by Cooper Dailey and Jhonnatan Ferrebus to load the bases and scored on a walk by Will Delaune.

A two-run single by Hayden Kibbe plated Dailey and Ferrebus to give Delgado an 8-6 lead before reliever Blaise Lalonde retired the Bears to secure the comeback win in the seventh.

Delgado took a 3–0 lead on Cameron Senior’s three-run home run in the second inning before Baton Rouge answered with a three-run inning to tie the game at three. Cooper Dailey’s solo homer in the third gave the Dolphins the lead before a solo homer by Baton Rouge’s Isaac Leger tied the game at four.

Hayden Kibbe reached base on a single in the fourth, advanced on a hit pitch and scored on a single by Preston Scott. Baton Rouge took the 6-5 lead with two runs in the bottom of the fourth before Delgado returned in the final inning.

Blaise Lalonde got the win on the mound and threw the final two innings, replacing starter Michael Hotard and Remy Marsh, who threw four innings.

In game one, Christian Westcott’s two-run double in the third put the Dolphins on the board before Westcott scored on a double by Rhett Centanni for the 3-0 lead.

Baton Rouge scored its first run on a sacrifice fly in the fourth and added a run on Ryan Richard’s solo shot in the fifth inning.

In the sixth, Josh Eames reached on a leadoff double and advanced on an infield error that allowed Logan O’Neill to reach base before a two-run single by Walker Bazile plated both runners. O’Neill’s RBI double in seventh-seeded Cooper Burch. Josh Eames reached base as a hit batter before Giovanni Licciardi’s three-run bomb extended the Dolphins’ lead to 9-2.

Baton Rouge’s final run crossed Seth Fontenot’s single in the seventh.

Luke Barbier went 6.2 innings and Brady Schmidt retired the last of the game to secure the 9-3 win.
