HOUSTON - Evan Powell's two-run single lifted Louisiana-Lafayette to the Super Regionals with a 5-2 victory over Rice on Monday.

Powell's single to left-center field added to RBI singles in the fourth by Tyler Girouard and fifth by Kyle Clement to open up a four-run lead. Louisiana-Lafayette (42-21) will face LSU in the Super Regionals in Baton Rouge.

Evan Guillory (5-0) got the win. He allowed two runs and six hits in five innings. Freshman Dylan Moore pitched three shutout innings in relief to earn his 13th save.

Grayson Lewis provided a lift for Rice (37-22) in the bottom half of the fifth with a two-run double to cut the lead to 4-2.

Rice threatened in the seventh with the bases loaded and no outs, but Moore came on in relief to retire three straight; including a force out at home, to end the threat. The freshman worked his way out of trouble again in the eighth getting back-to-back groundouts to strand runners at second and third.

Dylan Butler was 2 for 3 and added an insurance run with a sacrifice fly in the eighth.

Rice starter Jordan Stephens (6-5) took the loss. He allowed two runs, one earned, and six hits in 4 2-3 innings.
