Senior Jackie Baird homered twice as the Bucs scored 10 runs in the final two innings of Saturday's double-header finale to complete an impressive come-from-behind victory at Kennesaw State.
Entering the seventh inning trailing 3-2, junior Nicole Fox got the Bucs' (20-28, 7-14) offense rolling, leading off the inning with a single to center field.
Two batters later, Baird drove a homer to right field, her second of the game, to give ETSU a 4-3 lead.
Baird, who is tied for seventh on the A-Sun's single-season home run list with 20, went 3-for-5 with five RBI to help lead ETSU to the comeback victory.
The Owls (23-27, 12-12) scored once in the bottom of the seventh to extend the game to extra innings; however, ETSU's offense was too much to handle.
Seven of the Bucs' first eight batters of the eighth inning reached base, as ETSU manufactured eight runs, recapturing the lead, 12-4.
Kennesaw State managed just a single run in its final frame as the Bucs avenged an 8-0 setback in Game One of Saturday's double-header.
