FAU’s best chance to score again came in the sixth inning when Gressley reached on an Orange error, but Fawbush lined into a double play to end the threat.
Fawbush struck out six while taking a tough luck loss. The Owls return to the field on Tuesday to play Syracuse and Iowa at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m, respectively. Live stats of both games will be available at fausports.com.
