All 10 Morehead State hitters who appeared in Sunday's 14-4 victory over Eastern Illinois had at least one hit and scored at least once, including freshman first baseman Jackson Feltner who finished 4-of-5 with a career-high five RBI at Allen Field.

The Eagles, who recorded three wins over the Panthers in the same season for the first time in program history, improved to 18-13 overall. The game did not count, however, in the OVC standings. Feltner's two-run double in the bottom of the seventh ended the game early as the 10-run rule on the final day of a series was invoked.

Morehead State finished with a season-high 17 hits off five Panther pitchers.

Morehead State meets up with Eastern Kentucky for a non-conference game on Tuesday at 1 p.m. ET. The Eagles won two of three earlier in the year against EKU.
