ORLANDO, FL - Florida Atlantic University split an Atlantic Sun Conference doubleheader with UCF Tuesday afternoon in Orlando, FL. The Owls lost the first game, 4-1, before coming back to take game two, 3-2. Jessica Braggins, Jenn Piazza, Jennifer Cavanaugh, and Jenna Lopez all drove in runs for FAU (21-25, 2-2 A-Sun). Piazza went 3-for-6 on the day.
In the first game, UCF's Lindsay Enders hit a first inning grand slam to account for all of the Golden Knights' scoring. FAU came back in the third when Braggins drove in the Owls' only run. Meghan Doonan (8-9) took the loss for the Owls, allowing the four runs on six hits with seven strikeouts.
In the second game, FAU broke a scoreless tie with all three of its runs in the third. Piazza, Cavanaugh, and Lopez all drove in runs in consecutive at-bats.
Jania Shinhoster's two-run homer in the bottom of the fifth pulled UCF to within 3-2, but FAU's Ashley Greene closed the door the rest of the way.
Greene (4-6) finished with a complete game, allowing two runs on four hits with three strikeouts.
Pam Mazzarella, Lopez, and Braggins all collected two hits in the doubleheader.
