The "Black Magic" was in full effect in the opener of LSU Eunice's Fall World Series. The Black team shook off an early 3-run hole to claim the opener 7-3 in the best-of-seven series.
Game Two is set for 6 p.m. Friday at Bengals Stadium.
It was the "Golden Goats" that struck first in the opener. Jacob Richard blasted a lead-off opposite field home run off Black Magic starter Justin Barton to set an early tone for the Golden Goats. Nick Bellina followed that with a RBI single and Will Heath drove in the third run with a sacrifice ground out.
