Southern University got an all-around effort on Sunday, when it scored in five different innings and held Alabama State to just six hits en route to a 10-2 victory. The Jaguars broke the game open with a five-run rally in the third, and three Southern players had at least two RBIs in the win.

Cameron McGriff had a two-run double in the crucial third inning, and Taylor Roy added a two-run single in the sixth. Southern starter Brian Foster threw six innings and had seven strikeouts and no walks. Bryan Rowry drove in one run on a sacrifice fly and another on a single.

Alabama State starter T.J. Renda worked three innings and was charged with six earned runs in the loss, and the road team's first run scored on a strikeout and a passed ball in the fourth inning. Freshman infielder Einar Muniz contributed a run-scoring single in the top of the eighth.
