Smith gave up only 5 hits to the Eagles as the Catamounts belted out 13 hits, while scoring 4 runs and stranding 13 base runners. Friday night's drama came about when the Eagles had two runs on the scoreboard in the sixth inning after a ball was originally ruled by the home plate umpire to be a home run. After a huddle by the umpires the call was overturned and changed to a foul ball. Scooter Williams, the batter, would eventually strikeout.
Game two of the game series is scheduled for 2:30 pm on Saturday afternoon.
