Senior catcher/first baseman Troy Squires was 4-4 with three doubles while NCBWA National and SEC Player of the Week Luke Heyer continued his impressive streak with a double and a grand slam, the latter in the seventh inning to extend the lead to 16-5. Kole Cottam and TJ Collett also turned in home runs.
