The Eagles got it cooking in the bottom of the second, starting with a single to right field by senior Derrick Barton to score Sam Frazier. In the next at bat, catcher Dakota Graves stepped up to the plate and delivered a line drive homerun over the left field fence. Later in the inning first baseman Jared Cooper nailed a double to centerfield to score Malcolm Hawthorne. The Eagles scored six runs in the inning on four hits.
