The Sun Belt Divisional baseball races hit a key stretch this weekend and a very important series begins Friday in Lafayette. The Ragin Cajuns host the 2016 College World Series Champion Coastal Carolina Chanticleer this weekend and game one will be broadcast live on Cox Sports Television. Coverage begins Friday at 6:30pm.

The Cajuns enter the series a half game behind West Division leader Little Rock. Over the last six games, Louisiana has picked up four wins and enter the contest with identical 12-9 home and road records.

The Chanticleers lead the East Division and have won five in a row.
