BATON ROUGE - Hunter Kopycinski went 3 for 3 with a career-high five RBIs, and Rice had 16 hits in a 15-0 victory over Southeastern Louisiana on Monday night in the NCAA Tournament's Baton Rouge Regional.

Ryan Chandler drove in the opening two runs with a one-out, bases-loaded double in the second inning. After a pitching change, Kopycinski had a two-run single to center for a 4-0 lead.

Rice scored three runs on four hits in the fourth. Kopycinski doubled with two outs to score two and Charlie Warren made it 7-0 with an RBI single.

It was 13-0 by the end of the fifth on RBIs from Grayson Lewis, Kopycinski, Warren, Dominic DiCaprio and Ford Proctor.

Ricardo Salinas (9-2) allowed just three hits in 7 1/3 innings to get the win. SE Louisiana (40-21) used six pitchers in being eliminated.

There was a weather delay for more than an hour in the bottom of the eighth.
