Overview:

In game 1 of the series, Hunter McGarry saved the day and the game for FGCU, entering with the bases loaded and earning the save. UNF was on the verge of tying the game up after Cade Westbrook hit a clutch pinch hit double scoring two runs but the Eagles were able to throw out Isaiah Byers at 3rd base ending the game.

In game two of the series, Ian Farrow carried the offense with 3 RBI’s overall and 2 RBI’s in the 1st inning of the game. Johnny Long came through with an RBI single, giving the Eagles a 3-0 lead, but UNF scored 4 runs in the bottom of the inning, with 3 of those runs coming off the bat of Blake Marabell, via a 3 run homer. Both teams went back and forth as Farrow gave the Eagles back the lead 5-4 in the top of the 3rd. The Eagles took the lead for good in the top of the 7th, with Cam Krzeminski scoring on a failed pick off attempt on Marc Coffers.

In the final game of the series, the Eagles were down 5-0 headed into the 7th inning and FGCU found a way to win. The Eagles tied the game up in the top of the 8th, courtesy of Brian Ellis driving in Jalen Townsend and Johnny Long on a 2 RBI double. Ellis would hit a go ahead RBI double in the top of the 10th driving in Stephen Wilmer and Richie Garcia would extend the Eagles lead to 7-5 with an RBI single driving in Ellis. It was a huge sweep for FGCU and the Eagles have a huge opportunity to extend their winning ways with JU coming to Swanson Stadium next weekend.

What’s Next:

FGCU heads back home to face Jacksonville University (6-18, 0-6 ASUN) for a three game series starting Friday night.
