Luke Plucheck's early home run and late two-run double lifted Sam Houston State to a 4-2 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette on Friday night in the NCAA tournament.

The victory earned the Bearkats (38-20) a winner's bracket matchup with Baton Rouge regional host LSU (53-9) on Saturday, while the Ragin' Cajuns (41-19) were relegated to an elimination game against Jackson State (34-21).

Sam Houston starter Cody Dickson did not allow a hit until the fifth inning. He left in the sixth after giving up a two-out single by Blake Trahan that tied it at 2.

Plucheck's extra-base hit off reliever Matt Hicks put the Bearkats back ahead in the seventh. In the ninth, Plucheck made a catch against the left field wall of a towering shot by Dex Kjerstad that was a few feet from tying it.

Alan Scott (2-0) got the win for Sam Houston, while Hicks (3-2) took the loss.
