The Hurricanes have a strong offense including 6’3 FR IF Yohandy Morales who hits the cover off the ball and is a true underclassman leader, in his first season.

The Eagles are getting offense from the entire lineup and if the pitching can hold the Hurricanes in check, Wednesday could be a huge win for the Eagles.

FGCU earns the huge upset beating #5 Miami 6-4 and extending their winning streak to 4 games.
