- Braden Ostrander pitched well in his first collegiate start, allowing just three hits and one run in three innings of work. That one run would be FGCU's lone run of the ballgame.
- Adrien Reese showed flashes of greatness in his 2.1 innings of work. He only allowed three hits and didn't allow a single run while striking out a batter.
- Bobby Morgensen had the Owls' biggest hit of the night, smashing a two-run shot in the top of the third inning to put FAU up 3-1, a score that would stand.
- The Owls minimized their defensive issues from Sunday's game, not recording a single error in Tuesday's win over FGCU.
- FAU had a tough time driving runners home tonight, as 10 runners were left stranded on base for the Owls.
- Mike Entenza was stuck in a bases loaded, one out scenario to close the game out, and he delivered. He got a strikeout to get the second out, then got the third out after a strange call that involved a ground ball that deflected off of the batter's leg for the final out of the game.

Not much going for the Owls offensively so far... 😕— FAU Owl's Nest (@FAU_Owls_Nest) March 5, 2021
Owls only have one hit through three innings of play, FGCU took the lead off of a Jacob Lojewski home run. Get things going, Owls!#FGCU 1 - #FAU 0 | E3 | pic.twitter.com/Pi9H8e3i7T
