The Blue & Gold crossed the plate for the first time in the bottom of the fourth inning when Andrea Sarhatt (Knoxville, Tenn.) lifted a bases-loaded sacrifice fly, bringing home Kelly Warren (Mechanicsville, Va.). The very next inning saw two more ETSU runs as both Cameron Young (Knoxville, Tenn.) and Peyton Coleman (Alberta, Va.) scoring on a failed pickoff attempt.
That was as close as the Bucs would get with Jordan Moss launching a two-run shot in the top of the seventh, capping off a perfect 4-for-4 game.
