“All of the phases of the game were good. Offensively, everyone will remember the home runs a little more, but Trey had a bunch of good at-bats, Kole on base five times, I thought across the board a lot of good offensively,” Troy coach Skylar Meade said. “The pitchers attacked the zone for the most part, Dill calibrated in and gave us a solid effort and Stew was really good.”

Randy Flores, Christian Lopez and Devin Chandler each hit home runs for ASU. Devin Brooks earned his first loss on the mound, striking out two batters and giving up two hits and three earned runs in two innings pitched for the Hornets.
