One Down Six To Go; Owls Win Game Two 7-2


One Down Six To Go; Owls Win Game Two 7-2

Ahmed Garcia was dominant in his first Sun Belt Conference start, pitching eight complete innings to lead FAU past the University of New Orleans 7-2 Saturday.

FAU senior William Block hit his sixth homerun and finished the afternoon 3-for-5 with three RBI and a stolen base. The Owls’ offense generated 14 hits in support of Garcia and closer Glen Troyanowski, who worked a 1-2-3 ninth.

The Owls were on top 2-0 after early-inning RBI singles by Colby Gratton and David Wilson.  Block followed with a towering opposite-field two-run homer in the fifth, ending the afternoon of UNO freshman lefty Ricky Ott (1-2).

Wilson added an insurance run with FAU leading 6-2 in the seventh; lining a 3-2 pitch from Cory Myers over a drawn-in infield, scoring Mike Albaladejo who had singled to begin the inning.

With the score 7-2, Garcia was lifted after eight innings and 113 pitches. Troyanowski fanned two of the three batters he faced in the ninth.

FAU will look to keep post season hopes alive tommorow in game three of the series.
