“Southeastern was a really good team and it really does help us get ready for Baylor,” Green said. “I know they’re a Division II school, but it doesn’t matter what level it is. Everybody comes out and plays hard. It’s the game of baseball — anything can happen. We just tried to stayed positive and were able to get the win.”
The Cowboys will open the conference season against Baylor at 3 p.m. Friday at Allie P. Reynolds Stadium.
