Making sure get the momentum moving for the team, Logan Baldwin doubled to center field moving Brazil to 3rd. Evan McDonald then doubled to right bringing in the first two runs of the game.

Still in the Eagle’s half of the third, a 36-minute rain delay temporarily halted the action on the field. As soon as the play resumed Jordan Wren blasted a 3 run blast over the right field fence.

Not wanting to end the parade, Tyler Martin decided he also would hit a big fly over the fence in left center. Following in their footsteps, Mason McWhorter decided he would not be left out as he hit the Eagle’s third home-run of the inning over the center field fence.

On the defensive end, Georgia Southern used a total of nine different pitchers, who as a collective gave up four runs. Although only going for less than two innings, Ryan Frederick ended recording the win, which is his first of the season.
