After a quiet first inning, Ethan Ott made some noise, blasting a two-run home run over the left-field wall to put the Pilots up.

Location issues for the Mustangs in the fourth helped the Pilots extend their lead, as four walks put another run on the board. Mason Dunaway (James Madison) cashed in with the bases loaded and two outs, hitting a single to left field to score two more.

Mason Dunaway got his second hit in the sixth inning with a double. He was scored later in the inning on an RBI groundout by Justin Starke (VMI).

A two-RBI single ended Ereu’s shutout in the sixth and cut the Pilots’ lead to 6-2.

Mason Dunaway continued his incredible night in the seventh inning with a three-run bomb, extending the lead to 10-2.

RBI singles by Henry Garcia (Howard College) and Hunter Cole (Randolph Macon) put a bow on the game in the ninth inning.
