Wilkerson was credited with the win, the first of his ODU career. 

At the plate, ODU posted 11 hits, marking the sixth consecutive game with 10+ hits. Brian Morley (2-4, HR, 3 RBI) and Will Morgan (1-4, HR, RBI) both homered for the Monarchs, while Erik Stock (2-4, 2B, R), Tommy Bell (2-4, 2B, RBI, R) and Craig Lopez (2-4, RBI) also recorded multi-hit games.
