LEWISTON, Idaho — Embry-Riddle took its first lead of the game with a three-run top of the third. Adam Cellini set the table for the Eagles with a leadoff single to center. Pinch runner Connor Williams advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt before a Robbins double brought him home. An error by the York shortstop allowed another run and Lindheim drove in the third on a two out single to left.
York cut the deficit to 3-2 in the seventh on a Jordan Pella single, however Embry-Riddle responded with five runs in the top of the eighth to push its advantage out to 8-2. With the bases loaded and no outs, Robbins drove in a run with a single followed by a sacrifice fly by Kyle Chastain that scored Williams. Back-to-back singles by the Eagles accounted for another two runs before another sacrifice fly brought home the fifth.
In the bottom half of the inning, York took advantage of a fielding error on the Embry-Riddle third baseman and loaded the bases. However, a double play ended the threat, despite scoring a run.
Aaron Conyers (9-3) received the loss for the Panthers. Prior to the game, Conyers had not surrendered an earned run in six-straight appearances (34 innings).
