UMW plated a run in the eighth as freshman 3B Cam Kostyack led off by being hit by a pitch, and came around to score on an RBI single from left fielder Brendan Jones. UMW cut the deficit to one in the ninth, as T.J. Cretney reached on a fielder's choice, and moved to second on a Kostyack single. Second baseman Alex Bryant singled to left to plate Cretney.

Mancari took the loss for the Eagles, allowing seven hits and three runs in 7.1 innings with one walk and seven strikeouts. Joey Carleton pitched 1.2 innings of no-hit relief for the Eagles.

Mary Washington will return to action on Tuesday when the Eagles host Newport News Apprentice School at 2:00 p.m.
