UL catcher Julie Rawls hit home runs in both ends of Friday's doubleheader sweep of Georgia State.

The UL softball team didn’t just win Friday, they answered several questions in a doubleheader sweep of Georgia State in Decatur, Georgia.

The No. 16 Cajuns won the first game 10-2 and completed the sweep with a 4-0 win as Kandra Lamb tossed a one-hitter.

Perhaps as important as the sweep, the Cajuns (24-6, 10-1 Sun Belt) got big contributions from key personnel. Julie Rawls, who has been in a slump because of a thumb injury, hit home runs in both games of the doubleheader.

Also, Justice Milz returned after being sidelined with the effects of a concussion and hit her first homer of the season in the five-inning first game.

Joining Rawls and Milz going deep in the first game were Jade Gortarez (2 for 4, three RBIs), Sophie Piskos (2 for 3).

UL's Kendall Talley was 2 for 2 and Kaitlyn Alderink at 2 for 3 with two RBIs.

Pitcher Summer Ellyson (8-4) got the win in the first game, allowing two runs on four hits with no walks and seven strikeouts in 4⅔ innings.

In the second game, Rawls added homer and Talley was 2 for3.

Lamb was dominant in going the distance. She allowed no walks and struck out eight against Georgia State (12-7, 0-9).

The third game of the series will be played at noon Saturday.
