RUSTON, La. – The 18th-ranked Old Dominion baseball team is now one game away from its first-ever Conference USA Baseball Tournament title following a power-packed 13-5 win over Florida Atlantic on Saturday. The Monarchs (41-14) hit a C-USA Tournament single-game record seven home runs, highlighted by three jacks off the bat of Andy Garriola.
"Our guy's favorite thing is getting to the ballpark and seeing the wind blowing out," head coach Chris Finwood said. "Today it was, and we got some good pitches to hit. Our guys were awesome today. They just came out ready to go, and we pitched pretty good too.
