Zech Jarrard (5.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 5 K, 1 BB) finished the night with five strikeouts and only one walk.  In relief, Jared Wilson (2.0 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 K, 1 BB) struck out one of the eight batters he faced.
 
The Privateers took a 5-4 advantage over the home team in the ninth inning, when Jamarian Crain singled through centerfield allowing Iza Salo to score. A costly Arkansas State error gave New Orleans its second run of the inning.
