The Ospreys were the first to get on the board as Junior David Maberry plated a run in the third on an RBI single for a 1-0 lead.

Freshman Gray Betts tied the game at one in the fifth on a sacrifice fly to score one for a 1-1 score. The Flames took the lead in the same inning with an RBI double by Redshirt-Junior Jonathan Embry for a 2-1 lead.

In the sixth inning, Senior Jay Prather tied the game at two on a sacrifice fly to left to score one.

Redshirt-Junior Eddie Miller had a standout relief performance by going six innings but ultimately allowed an unearned run on a sacrifice fly by Sophomore Will Wagner in the twelfth inning for a 3-2 UNF loss.

The Ospreys look to go further in the tournament next season in hopes of making to to Omaha for the College World Series.
