UL pitcher Summer Ellyson (9) didn't allow a hit in 6.1 innings, recording both the win and the save in Sunday's 7-4 win over Texas State.

SAN MARCOS, Texas — After a come-from-behind win in game two Saturday, the UL Ragin’ Cajuns softball team completed the weekend sweep of reigning Sun Belt champion Texas State with another rocky win, 7-4 on Sunday.

Ace right-hander Summer Ellyson was pulled with a no-hitter after four innings with a 6-0 lead and things went downhill. The ploy to rest Ellyson didn’t work; she had to re-enter the game in the fifth inning after a four-run Texas State rally on just one hit.

Ellyson saved the day and ended up allowing no hits with two walks and a strikeout in 6 1/3 innings to unofficially save her own win.

UL (18-3, 3-0 Sun Belt) will return home to meet Baylor at 6 p.m. Monday at Lamson Park.

Offensively, the Cajuns jumped on Texas State (9-14, 0-3) in a hurry, first with power bats and then the running game.

Alyssa Dalton hit a solo homer in the first inning and Lexie Comeaux another in the third. In the fourth, Kourtney Gremillion’s RBI groundout got home a run ahead of Casidy Chaumont’s RBI single.

A double steal got Keeli Milligan home, and then Chaumont’s stolen base was spiced by a throwing error for a 6-0 lead.

Comeaux added an RBI single in the sixth for a 7-4 lead.

As comfortable a lead as that seemed at the time, things quickly got interesting in the fifth. Kandra Lamb hit a batter and walked four before giving up a two-run single to suddenly made it 6-4.
