MARTIN, Tenn. – Fletcher Johnson’s third-inning grand slam proved to be the difference Sunday as the UT Martin Skyhawks downed the Eastern Illinois Panthers 10-5 in the rubber match of a three-game Ohio Valley Conference Series.
The Skyhawks and Panthers had split the first two games of the series before Johnson’s blast – his first home run of the season – finally allowed the hosts to gain control of the game and, ultimately, the series.
The win helped UT Martin improve to 19-31 and 9-19 in conference play while Eastern’s season-long misery continued. The Panthers dropped to 11-39 with the loss which includes a record of just 5-22 in OVC play.
The Skyhawks wrap up the regular season this coming weekend at Jacksonville State while the Panthers will host SIUE.
