The Eagles made sure the blue and white faithful in the Hostess City went home happy with a 3-1 win over College of Charleston.

It was the Tyler show for Georgia Southern, as Tyler Martin drove in two runs and Tyler Owens put together another stellar start against the Cougars.

Martin’s double in the first inning chased home Steven Curry to put the Eagles on the board. His sacrifice fly to left field in the 6th scored Curry again to make it 3-0 Eagles. Curry went 4-4 from the leadoff spot for Southern, and scored twice.

Tyler Owens allowed just one run in seven strong innings.
