NORFOLK, Va. -- Old Dominion and FIU split a series-opening doubleheader on Saturday at the Bud Metheny Complex, setting up an Easter Sunday rubber match.

In game one, the Monarchs tagged FIU ace Logan Allen for eights run on 10 hits. Allen entered the day 4-2 with a 1.81 ERA.

Vinnie Pasquantino broke a 1-1 tie early in the game with a two-run home run in the third inning. ODU is now 7-1 in games that Pasquantino homers.

The Monarchs then broke the game open with four runs in the fifth, including 2-RBI doubles from Erik Stock and Jared Hancock

FIU slowly cut into the 8-1 deficit, but Isaiah Nelson came on in the ninth to close the door for his first save of 2019.

Tommy Gertner provided ODU with a solid start, allowing one run in four innings, while striking out a season-high seven.

In game two, the Panthers broke open a one-game in the seventh inning with a 6-run top half. ODU led 4-2 through four innings, but FIU scored seven runs on 12 hits off of the Monarch bullpen.

Will Morgan homered for ODU in game two, while Andy Garriola went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs.
