Northwestern State used a bases loaded walk and a Southern throwing error on an attempted double play that could have ended the inning to score three runs in the fifth and break open a 2-2 game on the way to a 9-5 victory Tuesday night at Lee Hines Field.
Garrett Kilgore added a two-run single and a third RBI on a sacrifice fly.
The teams are scheduled to meet again Wednesday.
