The Eagles jumped ahead 3-0 in the first inning and didn't trail until the last play of the game.
"We were chasing them all night," Generals Coach Chris Langston said.
Sam Shelley come on in relief of Alex Daniel in the fourth and went the rest of the way to earn the win for Lafayette, which ran its record to 32-5.
"It was another example of how determined we are," Langston said.
"We feel good going into the region because we know what we're good at.
"If we play defense and out pitching comes through, we know we have a chance against anybody.
"We know who we are, and we stick to it."
