    Trailing 2-1 going to the eighth inning, VCU pushed across three runs taking its first lead of the weekend at 4-2. Michael Haydak drew a leadoff walk and scored on Tyler Locklear's double down the left field line. Logan Amiss followed with a single to left and took second on an error. Three batters later, Cooper Benzin plated the would-be game-winning run with a shot back up the middle.

    Jaden Griffin (3-1) earned the win for the Rams in relief tossing 1.2 scoreless frames with a pair of walks. Edwin Serrano notched his third save of the year with two scoreless innings where he allowed two hits, walked a pair and struck out one. Starter Tyler Davis gave up two runs (both earned) on three hits with three punch outs in 5.1 innings.

    Garrett Saylor (2-3) took the loss surrendering three runs (two earned) on two hits with a pair of punch outs in one-plus inning of relief. Starter Josh Grosz tossed a career-best six innings giving up one runs (earned) on three this with two walks and four strikeouts. ECU also got outings from C.J. Mayhue (1.0 IP, 1 H, 1 K), Zach Agnos (0.2 IP, 1 R, 2 BBs, 1 K) and Carter Spivey (0.1 IP, 1 BB, 1 K).

    ECU jumped out to an early 2-0 lead thanks to a pair of home runs in the third inning. With one out, Carter Cunningham blasted a solo shot (first of the year) to right field which was immediately followed by a solo blast by Bryson Worrell (third) to right field.

    After six scoreless frames by Grosz, the Rams finally scratched across a run in the seventh cutting the lead in half. Connor Hujsak singled to left-center, took second on a passed ball, third on a Benzin sac bunt and touched home on Casey Gibbs' sac bunt.

    ECU managed just five hits on the day getting two from Bryson Worrell and one each from Cam Clonch, Carter Cunningham and Lane Hoover.
