BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Old Dominion, with a six-run lead, was three outs away from sweeping No. 28 Florida Atlantic on the road, but the Owls mounted a seven-run ninth inning rally to salvage a win in the series finale.
Old Dominion (26-17, 9-12) led 7-1 entering the ninth inning. Starting pitcher Ryne Moore tossed eight masterful innings, but a three-run home run from FAU's Mitchell Hartigan chased Moore in the ninth with no outs.
FAU then strung together a series of free passes and hits off of the Monarch bullpen, before Pedro Pages won it for the Owls with a 2-RBI single with one out.
For Moore in his eight innings pitched, he allowed four earned runs on 11 hits, while walking none.
Offensively for ODU, Bryce Windham went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBIs and three runs scored. The home run was Windham's first out-of-the-park home run of his career.
