The Phoenix led 5-0 after four innings. After LaSalle scored four runs in the top of the 5th, Elon responded with two runs in the bottom of the inning to lead 7-4. Then in the top of the 6th, the Explorers knocked in three runs to tie the game at seven. Hilt broke the tie in the bottom of the 7th with his second two-run homer of the ballgame.
Jimmy Reyes picked up the win for Elon, while LaSalle’s Cody Weiss was saddled with the loss.
