Redshirt Senior Mason O'Brien belted a grand slam and a two-run homer and right-hander Liam Eddy tied a career-high seven strikeouts as the Shoclers knocked off top-seeded East Carolina University 12-5 in the AAC baseball tournament. O'Brien's two homers and six RBI tied an American Championship single-game record. The Shockers will face fourth-seeded UConn at 9 a.m. Saturday. They would have to defeat UConn twice to advance to Sunday's winner-take-all championship game.
