MOUNT OLIVE -- Zach Mozingo earned his fifth save of the season and No. 5-ranked University of Mount Olive fended off Franklin Pierce, 7-4, at Scarborough Field on Tuesday afternoon.

Mozingo provided 11/3 innings of no-hit, one-strikeout relief.

Braxton Shetley started, but was replaced by Ethan Horne in the fourth. Horne (2-1) claimed the mound win with 21/3 innings of one-hit, three-strikeout relief during his outing.

The Trojans swatted two home runs -- one each by Drew Ellis and Grant Tyndall. Ellis ended the day 2-for-4 with three RBI, while Tyndall turned in a 1-for-3, two-RBI effort.

Ricky Surum contributed two hits and stole two bases.

Tyndall belted his home run in the third inning, which gave UMO a 2-1 advantage. FP answered two runs in top of the fourth. Jose Lopez knotted the game at 3-all with an RBI single to left center that scored Mozingo.

Ellis delivered a two-RBI in the fifth and added his solo home run in the seventh.

The Trojans (20-5 overall) carry a five-game win streak into this weekend's Conference Carolinas series at in-state rival Pfeiffer University. The teams will play a single game Friday and a doubleheader Saturday.
