NORFOLK, VA—ODU sophomore Connor Myers had four hits and PJ Higgins and Taylor Ostrich added three each along with the five-hit pitching from six hurlers to lead the Monarchs (20-14) over Wofford (19-15) from the Southern Conference, 15-2  Wednesday afternoon at the Bud Metheny Baseball Complex.

 The Monarchs scored all 15 runs in the first four innings.  In the first inning Ben Slaton singled, PJ Higgins doubled, and both scored on a triple by Josh Eldridge. Eldridge then scored on a sacrifice fly RBI by Josiah Burney for a 3-0 lead.

In the second inning, the Monarchs had seven singles and pushed across six runs. Jordan Negrini singled in two in that frame for a 9-0 lead. In the third, PJ Higgins singled in two runs and Ben Slaton doubled in a run  to help  up the lead to 13-0.

Wofford added two runs in the fourth on a two-run double by Carson Waln.  ODU added the final two runs in the bottom of the fourth on a two-run single from freshman catcher Kurt Sinnen, scoring Myers and Brian Bashara.
