The camouflage uniforms couldn’t hide it.

Tulane’s baseball team is rolling.

On Tuesday night, the No. 15 Green Wave used many elements of the same formula that has propelled the program to its highest ranking in nearly a decade. Tulane knocked off crosstown rival UNO 5-2 on Military Appreciation Night, smacking a pair of home runs and riding the arm of starter J.P. France.

The victory earned Tulane (32-14) a season split with the Privateers (28-19), avenging a 10-9 defeat at Maestri Field on March 9. The Green Wave walked away with the First NBC Cup thanks to prevailing in the overall run margin.

It marked the 10th win in the Green Wave’s past 11 games, continuing the surge that pushed Tulane from a team considered on the NCAA tournament bubble to one submitting a realistic bid to host a regional. The program hasn’t hosted since 2005.

“We have been sticking to the formula that has been getting us wins,” junior outfielder Lex Kaplan said. “It’s been working the past few weeks. We just need to stay with it. We feel relaxed and are having a lot of fun.”

Midweek victories have helped tremendously in building Tulane’s résumé; the Wave notched its sixth top-100 RPI victory on a Tuesday night.

Meanwhile, the Privateers have stumbled into May, dropping four of their past seven outings. UNO used seven different pitchers who experienced varying levels of success, but together they weren’t enough to quiet Tulane’s powerful hitting.

“The key was we didn’t get the big hits,” UNO coach Blake Dean said. “You can’t single them to death. We didn’t get the big hit, and we didn’t come up in big situations and capitalize. That’s basically how the game went.”

Tulane jumped on top early, thanks to Hunter Hope’s second-inning line drive that he ripped off the center-field wall and induced a poor throw from the outfield, allowing him to tally an inside-the-park home run. It was Hope’s team-leading 12th homer of the season.

A Hunter Williams ground-rule double to the same spot set up Grant Brown’s RBI single that gave Tulane a 2-0 lead.

UNO scratched its way back to a one-run deficit in the fourth, thanks to Hezekiah Randolph’s double and Chaz Boyer’s run-scoring single.

Tulane was able to extend the advantage in the bottom of the inning when Kaplan blasted a homer into left field. It was the Green Wave’s 50th long ball of the season, which is more than it hit the past three seasons combined.

France earned his third consecutive midweek win, tossing seven innings and allowing a single earned run. He also didn’t crumble when his defense faltered, allowing just run to score in a fifth inning that included a pair of errors and a passed ball.

But the most pleasing news of the night for Tulane may have been the performance of former ace Corey Merrill. He came in to earn a save, striking out five of the six batters he faced and blowing away the top of the Privateers order.

In his past two relief appearances since injuring his forearm in early March, he has struck out 10 hitters in 5.1 innings and displayed the same movement on his cut fastball and breaking ball that made him the ace of the staff at the season’s onset.

“That was lights-out stuff right there,” coach David Pierce said. “Where you’re looking at back-end type of guys, he goes two innings and gets five punchouts — he was dominating.”

Tulane will attempt to keep its hot streak on the line at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday when it hosts Southern at Turchin Stadium before returning to American Athletic Conference play with a three-game set against Memphis over the weekend.

UNO returns to action Friday when it faces Southeastern Louisiana for three Southland Conference games.

“We have a ton of confidence,” Hope said. “From defense to hitters to pitchers, everyone is just feeling great.”
