NCCU (15-16, 9-5 MEAC) starter Devin Sweet (Greensboro, N.C.) found himself in a bit of trouble in the first inning, but was helped out by a tremendous double play turned by Eric Kimber (Greensboro, N.C.) who applied a tag on the trailing runner before throwing to first to get the batter, keeping a run off the board.

The Eagles sent nine men to the plate in the top of the second inning to go in front of the Aggies 6-0 early. Cory Williamson (Greensboro, N.C.) came up to bat with two men on and squared to bunt for the at bat, running the count to 2-1 before pulling the bat back and sending one to right center for a 2-RBI double.  Jacobi Harris (Pittsboro, N.C.) tacked on an RBI base hit to keep the run going for NCCU before being brought home later in the inning. read more
