Jose DeLa Torre hit two home runs and Tyler Kirksey drove in what turned out to be the winning run on an infield hit with a head-first slide as Southern (7-15) exceeded its win total in the first six weeks of the season (3) with four wins in four days.
The Jaguars swept a three-game series from Grambling on Saturday and Sunday.
J'Markus George earned the win with four and two-third innings of relief, allowing just two runs. Closer Rafael Diaz earned his third save, pitching out of trouble in the eighth and adding a scoreless ninth to preserve the victory.
DeLa Torre hit a solo homer in the first and a two-run shot in the third to give the Jags 1-0 and 3-2 leads. However, it was Sergio Torres and Kirksey with RBIs in the fourth that provided the winning margin over McNeese State (17-12).
Southern next travels to Prairie View for a weekend series against the Panthers.
