You could not have a more exciting ending.

East St. John downed Belle Chasse 7-3 in a non-district contest at Reserve.

The game was tied at three in the bottom of the seventh inning when Kevin Breaux ended it in thrilling fashion, belting a grand slam on a 3-2 count to win it.

Breaux had a monster afternoon, going 4-for-4 with three home runs, a triple and drove in all seven runs for the Wildcats in perhaps the best hitting performance of the season in the area, if not the state.

Breaux, now batting .441, put East St. John (16-12) on top in the bottom of the first with a two-run home run. After Belle Chasse scored a run in the top of the third on an RBI double by Mark Plaisance to make it 3-1, Breaux belted his second home run in the bottom of the frame to make it 3-2. The Cardinals tied it with a run in the top of the seventh, setting the stage for Breaux’s dramatics.

Herman Farlough started and went five innings, allowing one run on four hits, striking out eight for the Wildcats. Marcus Jackson pitched the final two innings in relief to pick up the win.

Eli Musso took the loss for the Cardinals (13-14). Musso went the distance allowing seven hits. Plaisance and Charlie Burt each had two hits for Belle Chasse.

East St. John returns to action Wednesday against St. Martin’s Episcopal at 4 p.m. at Mike Miley Stadium while Belle Chasse will host Fisher Wednesday at 6 p.m.
