The Rougarou needs some gris gris.
The Baton Rouge Rougarou lost its third straight game since returning home to Pete Goldsby Field and its second in a row to the Acadiana Cane Cutters Thursday night, 11-3.
The loss dropped the Rougarou to 4-5 on the season and left the team still in search of its first home victory.
The Cane Cutters, who are in a three-way tie for first place with the Brazos Valley Bombers and the Victoria Generals, knocked 14 hits off of three Rougarou pitchers. And, for the second night in a row, the home team struggled defensively, committing four errors.
Ty Ringo got the start and the loss, allowing five hits in five innings. He allowed six runs, three of them earned, walked three and struck out three. Ethan Brister and Cage Chaney each pitched two innings in relief.
The Rougarou managed eight singles off of a pair of Cane Cutter pitchers. Reed Eason and Elliot Hebert both got three hits. Hebert drove in two of the Rougarou runs.
The team will have Friday night off then return to action Saturday and Sunday at 7 p.m. against the Seguin River Monsters at Pete Goldsby Field.
