Despite the early scoring outburst, FDA head coach Josh Beverly said he felt like his team was a little rusty after having two games rained out during the spring break holiday.

“We are in a bit of a collective slump right now,” he said. “We aren’t striking out. We just aren’t hitting the ball hard.”

FDA (14-6) finished the game with nine hits.

Drake Cabe led the charge with a 4-for-4 effort. Austin Vickery was 1-for-2 and and Kenny Harden, Jr. and Hood were each 1-for-1.
