Butler Tuesday.

The Panthers only recorded five
hits, well below their season aver-
age of 10 hits per game going into
Tuesday’s matchup. Even so, East-
ern found a way to score its neces-
sary runs from sacrifice flies.

“Butler gave us three opportuni-
ties to score some big runs early in
the game with some leadoff walks,”
said Eastern head coach Jason An-
derson. “We didn’t really capitalize
on them but managed to get a cou-
ple sacrifice flies that ended up be-
ing enough to get the win.”

Jimmy Govern knocked in East-
ern’s first run in the third inning,
and Christian Pena brought in East-
ern’s insurance run just an inning
later.

Trey Sweeney reached first base
in the top of the third inning on a
fielder’s choice, as Dane Toppel was
forced out at second base on the
play. Tyler Tesmond batted next and
singled through the left side of the
infield, putting Sweeney at second.

Sweeney then advanced to third
base and Tesmond to second on a
wild pitch, setting up Govern’s fly-
out to right field to bring in Swee-
ney.

Govern finished hitless on the
day (0-for-3), but he brought in
the most important run for Eastern,
bringing in his team-leading 17th
RBI in the process.

the fourth inning.
