Two mishandled pop flies in the outfield in the fifth inning opened the door for Naples to swipe a 4-3 victory from Ida Baker Monday night snapping the Bulldogs' five-game winning streak.

The Eagles' two-run rally tied the game at 3-3 while the third single coming in the sixth inning produced the game-winning run. The Eagles (15-3) collected a total of nine hits in the game.

Bryce VanHorn started for the Bulldogs (15-3) and stuck out three while allowing one earned run over 2 1/2 innings. Christian Menendez (0-2) pitched through the sixth inning and was tagged with the loss while allowing three earned runs with three strikeouts.
