Overview:

FGCU is looking for their first win of the season vs Miami, after losing 15-2 on 3/17, and 3-2 on 4/14. The Eagles are coming off a weekend where they lost 2 out of 3 games to Stetson University, while the Hurricanes lost 2 out of 3 games to UNC.

Brian Ellis has been an offensive juggernaut all season, while Stephen Wilmer and Ian Farrow have been clutch lately, coming through for FGCU with runners on base. Christian Del Castillo and Adrian Del Castillo lead the Hurricanes offensively, and are both hitting over .300 on the season. Hopefully the third time is the charm for the Eagles, as they look to win their first game vs Miami Tuesday night.

Prediction:

FGCU 5 UM 4
