The Eagles got just such an inning to start off Wednesday's game against Emerald, and with the way their defense was playing, that one inning was more than enough to bury the Vikings.
Greenwood jumped out to a 3-0 lead after one inning, then watched as pitcher Jacob Stockman gave up just one hit as he went the distance and led Greenwood to a 3-0 victory at Lander University's Dolny Stadium.
"We came out swinging the bats pretty hot, and then they kind of cooled off on us ... but we grinded and made the plays we needed to make in the field," Vaughn said. "Every position player on the field made a play at some point, and we got a great performance from Jacob Stockman. He let his defense work for him (Thursday) and did a great job."
