Georgia Southern scored three runs in the eighth inning, one on a wild pitch and two on an error, to give the Eagle baseball team a 6-3 Southern Conference win at Samford Sunday afternoon at Joe Lee Griffin Field.
The GSU win gives the Eagles the series win over the Bulldogs. Samford won the first game of the series, 6-2 on Friday night, but GSU took the Saturday afternoon game by a score of 18-14.
"That was a tough one," Samford head coach Casey Dunn said. "The last two days, we haven't executed and we've played poorly. We've made a lot of progress over the last couple of weeks, but unfortunately, we've taken two steps back in the last couple of days."
The teams entered the eighth inning tied at 3-3. Ben Morgan was hit by a pitch and Chase Griffin doubled to move Morgan to third base to start the inning for GSU. Arthur Strauss then came into pitch for Andres Gracia for Samford. Strauss intentionally walked T.D. Davis to load the bases. Morgan then scored on a wild pitch, and Griffin and Davis scored when catcher Richard Greene's throw to third base went wide to give the Eagles a 6-3 lead.
