Junior Tanner Murphy was able to cross home on a ground-rule double by Junior Austin Hurwitz and cut the lead to 2-1 in the top of the third, giving the Ospreys momentum moving forward. Senior Alex Reynolds singled to right in the top of the fourth to plate a runner and tie the game at two.

Liberty answered immediately when they came up to bat in the bottom of the fourth with two RBI’s from Sophomores Brandon Rohrer and Logan Mathieu to extend the Flames lead to 4-3. 

The Ospreys added another run in the top of the seventh when Weeks answered with another run of an RBI groundout to second by Reynolds and cut the lead to 4-3. 

North Florida went scoreless for the rest of the game to eventually lose to the Liberty Flames, 4-3.
