Clarksville, Ark.-The Eagles' offense finally got on track in a 11-0 game three win over Texas-Dallas and Ian Bryan tossed a four-hit complete game Saturday afternoon in American Southwest Conference play.

Prior to game three, Ozarks (9-8, 1-2 ASC) had totaled a combined 14 hits during the series. But it was a different story in the final game of the three-game set. The Eagles pounded out 17 hits and worked through four different Comet (10-9, 2-1 ASC) pitchers. Six different players had multiple-hit games for Ozarks.

Ozarks would own a 2-0 lead after two complete innings and then add two more runs in the third. Taylor Parker singled up the middle for an RBI and John Singler would record a sacrifice fly for another RBI. In the fourth, Nick Brill had a big two-run single up the middle and Singler again would have a sacrifice fly for the third run of the frame. Leading 7-0, Ozarks would add to its advantage in the fifth after collecting five hits. Mitchell Powers doubled in a run and Brill followed with a two-run double. Tony Morales then laced a single to left field to score Brill, cushioning the lead to 11-0.

The high-powered offense overshadowed a dominating pitching performance from Bryan. After the second inning, Bryan cruised through the final five frames retiring the side in the third, fourth, fifth and sixth inning. The senior right-hander did allow a hit in the seventh, but induced a double play against the next batter. Bryan, who has yet to give up an earned run this season, fanned five and issued just one walk to move his record to 2-1.

Freddy Prince finished 3-for-5 with three runs. Powers ended 3-for-3 with two runs and an RBI.
Morales went 3-for-4 with an RBI and Brill totaled 5 RBI in a 2-for-2 performance. Dean Igert and Sam Shook each went 2-for-4.

In game one Saturday, Texas-Dallas opened the first inning with three runs, added a run in the second and didn’t let Ozarks score until the fourth inning in a 7-1 victory. The Eagles threatened in the fifth when they loaded the bases with one out. But Texas-Dallas inserted relief pitcher Micah Esterling and the sophomore right-hander quickly ended the threat by inducing a double play.

Powers went 2-for-3 for the Eagles.

Jeffrey Works (0-2) took the loss after tossing five innings.

Ozarks will travel to Batesville to face Lyon College March 12.
