ATHENS - Aaron Mizell homered twice and drove in four runs as the Georgia Southern Eagles took the deciding Game Three 18-4 over the Georgia Bulldogs at Foley Field Sunday. 
Mizell helped power the Georgia Southern (2-1) offense, which tallied 21 hits and posted its first 10 run inning since April 27, 2013. The Eagles jumped ahead 11-0 and scored all 11 runs in the top of the third inning.
GSU sent 16 batters to the plate in the third inning and tallied 10 hits to score the 11 runs. Dalton Busby sparked the rally after reaching first base on a strikeout and a wild pitch. Kody Adams followed with an infield hit, and Ben Morgan loaded the bases with a single. Mizell plated the first run of the inning with a sacrifice fly. Mizell later capped off the inning with a two-run homer.
Morgan, Chase Griffin and Adams all tallied three hits and in total seven Eagles recorded multiple hits. 
Pitching in relief of starter Ryan Frederick, Jason Richman picked up the win after tossing three innings in relief. Richman held Georgia (1-2) to two runs on five hits and struck out four batters. Richman (1-0) gave way to McCall in the sixth inning and the senior right hander tossed 3.1 scoreless frames to earn a save.
