Redshirt senior Jordan Robinson was 3-for-5 at the plate Tuesday night, helping spark Bethune-Cookman to a 7-4 victory over Florida International.
The win for the Wildcats helped them complete the season series sweep of the Panthers, having defeated FIU a week ago in Daytona Beach.
Three times Bethune-Cookman took the lead in the game. Three times FIU answered. However, the fourth time would be an all-important two-run eighth inning that eventually propelled the Wildcats to victory.
The hot-hitting Jordan Robinson continued his hitting streak at a season-best nine games, collecting his third hit of the night with a run-scoring double to left that crossed Nathan Bond for the go-ahead score at 4-3. Robinson would advance to third on the play as the FIU defense tried to cut down Bond at the plate.
B-CU (11-21) would add to the lead on the next play, using an Austin Garcia sac fly to score Robinson from third, giving the Wildcats a 5-3 advantage heading into the home-half of the inning.
FIU (13-16) answered once again, this time with a JC Escarra solo home run.
That brought the Panthers to within 5-4 heading into the final frame.
However, the Bethune-Cookman offense was not finished.
With the bases loaded for Garcia in the top of the ninth, he placed a two-run single to right center, plating Jameel Edney and Bryant Munoz. That allowed B-CU a comfortable 7-4 lead heading into the bottom-half. Read full at Bethune
