Morgan Maguire threw a complete-game shutout Saturday as the last-place Old Dominion Monarchs defeated UTSA 7-0 at Norfolk Va., in Conference USA baseball.
With the victory, Old Dominion evened the three-game series at one win apiece leading into Sunday’s series finale.
Maguire allowed five hits while striking out seven a day after UTSA pounded ODU pitching in an 11-1 victory.
For UTSA, it was the team’s fifth shutout loss of the season and first since April 8, when Louisiana Tech won 13-0 in San Antonio.
This one might sting a little more than usual.
The loss prevented the Roadrunners from winning the series on the second-to-last weekend of the regular season.
It also dropped them into a tie for fifth in the standings with FIU.
After Sunday’s series finale against ODU in Virginia, UTSA returns home to face Abilene Christian in nonconference play Tuesday.
The Roadrunners host the Charlotte 49ers in C-USA next weekend.
Old Dominion — 15-32, 7-18
UTSA — 27-21, 13-12
