Morehead State freshman first baseman Jackson Feltner launched three home runs, including two in the opening-game win, and senior second baseman Bryce Hensor totaled four hits on the day as the Eagle baseball team split a double dip at Jacksonville State Saturday.
The Eagles pitched a shutout and won 3-0 in the opener before seeing the home team score six times in the sixth after a lengthy weather delay to hold on and hand MSU a 9-5 setback in the nightcap.
Morehead State still secured a hold on first place in the OVC with a 9-5 record while sitting at 19-15 overall now. The Gamecocks are 19-19 overall and 9-8.
The teams wrap the OVC series on Sunday with a single game at 2 p.m. ET.
