The Bears had their backs against the wall, in game two, of the Region XXIII baseball tournament at Tulane University. They had to beat conference foe the Delgado Dolphins to advance and live another day. The Bears would jump out to an early two to zero lead over the Dolphins but the bats went cold for the Bears and they watched the Dolphins explode for 10 runs to take the 10 to 2, seven inning victory thus ending the Bears 2019 season.
The Bears came out of the gates hot on offense as they would score two runs, in the first. Luke Lancon would reach on an error, followed by a walk by Cameron Crawford. William Veillon would then triple to centerfield scoring Crawford. Luis Marmolejos would ground out to the second basemen but Veillon would score on the play. The Dolphins would score one run, in the first inning, to cut the Bears lead to 2 to 1. The Bears bats went ice cold as, Dolphin's pitcher Daniel Dugas settled in and held the Bears scoreless over the next five innings.

They would add to their lead with a run, in the third, and six runs, in the sixth, to solidify the 10 to 2 victory.
