SAN MARCOS, TEXAS - Georgia Southern's bats were alive on Sunday, ringing out for 15 hits on Sunday to take a 10-7 victory over Texas State to close out the weekend series. Mitchell Golden, Jason Swan and Christian Avant each had three hit days as the Eagles posted a season-high total in the hits column. Cole Whitney earned the win, his fourth of the year, out of the bullpen.

The Eagles break for final exams this week and return to the diamond on Friday night, opening a three game series with Troy. First pitch against the Trojans is set for 6:30 p.m. on Jack Stallings Field at J.I. Clements Stadium.

Bottom 2nd - After Braxton Johns worked a clean first frame, the Bobcats got to the sophomore in the second, stringing together two hits before Dylan Scheible hit a three-run home run to put the home side up 3-0.
Top 3rd - The Eagles answered back in the third, plating three runs to even the contest at 3-3. Austin Thompson drove in two with a gapped single to right. A bases loaded single up the middle by Chandler Corley plated the third run.
Top 4th - A leadoff single by Christian Avant was converted to a run with a sacrifice bunt and a Jason Swan RBI single to left to give the Eagles their first lead of the day.
Top 5th - A two out throwing error in the fifth opened the door for an unearned run. Mitchell Golden singled up the middle to plate Corley, who reached second on the two base error, and make the lead 5-3.
Top 6th - The Eagles batted around in the sixth, hanging a crooked number with a five-spot to blow the game open at 10-3. Mason McWhorter drove in two when he split the gap in left. Corley, Golden and Avant followed suit by lashing RBI singles of their own.
Bottom 7th - Bobcats made the final few innings interesting with four runs off four hits in the seventh inning, cutting the lead to 10-7.

- Cole Whitney worked four and two thirds innings out of the bullpen to earn his fourth win of the season. He allowed two runs off two hits with two strikeouts.
- Jason Swan went 3-for-6 with an RBI and a ground rule double on his day in the leadoff slot.
- Mitchell Golden recorded three hits for his second-straight multi-hit game. He was 3-for-5 with a double and a RBI.
- Christian Avant got three hits in five trips to the plate, driving in a run and scoring a run.
- The win takes the Eagles above the .500 mark for the first time since April 10th. The Eagles were 16-15 at that point after taking both games over Little Rock.


The Eagles will have four days off for final exams this week before returning to the diamond on Friday night for a three game series against Troy. First pitch on Friday night is set for 6:30 p.m.
