The Eagles tied game two at 1-1 in the third inning, using an ETSU throwing error that scored freshman outfielder Kayla McGuffey.

Freshman pitcher Megan Tymorek (2-6) took the loss in game one, as she allowed all three runs on eight hits with four strikeouts. The Chesterton, Ind., native retired 10 straight from the second to fifth innings. Taylor Carter (6-1) earned the win in the opener, striking out five hitters.
