Clarksville, Ark.-Austin College overcame a 2-1 eighth inning deficit to knock off the Eagles 5-4 Sunday in Sherman, Texas.

In the first, Andrew Teaster singled in Cory Briggs for the first run of the game. The Kangaroos (14-24) eventually tied the game with a run in the bottom of the fourth. The score remained tied until the eighth when Rusty Cordell recorded a sacrifice fly. For the second straight day, the Kangaroos put together a two-out rally to pull out a win. Ozarks (17-22) opened the bottom of the eighth with a strikeout. The next batter drew a walk, but the Eagles forced a groundout on the next at-bat. However, Austin College got three hits and scored four runs with two outs to go ahead 5-2. The Eagles loaded the bases in the top of the ninth with no outs, and would push across two runs on a David Smith double to get within 5-4. But Austin College forced a double play to end the game.

Teaster finished 2-for-3. Smith drove in two runs.

D.J. Braswell (2-5) took the loss.

Ozarks has advanced to the playoffs for the third straight season under head coach Jimmy Clark. The Eagles will be the No. 4 seed from the American Southwest Conference East Division and will travel to Seguin, Texas, to face West Division champion Texas Lutheran University (28-13, 16-5 ASC) April 24-25. The best-of-three series will begin Friday with game one.
