In their second game of the day, FAU and Drake went to extra innings tied at one. The Bulldogs scored in the top of the eighth, but FAU couldn't answer and lost its second game of the day, 2-1.
The Owls will face Wright State and Loyola Marymount on Saturday. The games are scheduled to start at 1 p.m. eastern and 7 p.m. eastern, respectively.
