NORFOLK, Va. – Old Dominion University’s head baseball coach, Joey Burney (Gloucester, VA.) followed by loading the bases after being hit with a pitch. After a pitching change, Jordan Negrini (Kihei, HI.) singled in Higgins, giving the Monarchs their first run of the ballgame.

Junior shortstop Tyler Urps then followed with a walk to force in Perez and draw ODU to within one run at 3-2. Senior Austin McGowan then came up big with a game-winning pinch-hit single up the middle that scored pinch runner Drew Coker (Chester, VA.) and Jordan Negrini.
