The double-header was required after Saturday’s game was suspended by rainstorms in the top of the third inning.

FAU took a 4-0 lead after two innings in Sunday’s second game, thanks to three home runs.
The Owls had back-to-back home runs in the first, as Mark Nelson hit a two-run shot to left center. Corey Keller then came up and hit a solo home run to left.
Ricky Santiago started off the second with a solo home run, as three of the Owls first four hits of the game were home runs. Santiago’s blast knocked ULL starter Derek Howell out of the game.
The Owls added three more runs in the sixth with three singles, a walk and wild pitch.
FAU starter Austin Gomber allowed one run and one hit in five innings to earn the win. Gomber, a 6-foot-5 freshman lefthander from Winter Park, is now 3-1 on the season.
The Ragin’ Cajuns (13-14, 3-6) helped the Owls by committing five errors in the three games that turned into five unearned runs. ULL pitchers walked six Owls in each game for a total of 18 in the series.
