Neal tacked on another four runs in the third inning. Malcolm Hawthorne kicked things off with a single.

Four runs in the top of the fifth helped Flomaton close its deficit to 6-4. An RBI double by Andrew Cash, a sacrifice groundout by Corey Bailey, and a two-run home run by Dalton Simmons sparked Flomaton ‘s rally, but a groundout at third base would end the Hurricanes comeback hopes.

Jared Cooper got the win for the Eagles, allowing four runs over 4 2/3 innings. Cooper struck out four, walked four and gave up five hits.

Evan Tatum was charged with the loss for Flomaton. He allowed six runs in three innings with a walk.

Neal is 6-3 for the season.
