Eastern Michigan's Anthony Tomey held Tennessee to two hits as the Eagles posted a 4-1 victory over the Volunteers and a series win at Lindsey Nelson Stadium.
Tomey (1-0), who struckout a career-high nine batters, pitched 8 2/3 innings and held the Vols to one unearned run on two hits. After giving up a lead-off single in the first to Jordan Czarniecki, who scored the lone Tennessee run, he would not be touched for a hit again until the sixth when Walter Sevilla doubled.
Ryan Goleski collected three hits to pace the Eagles, including a two-run home run that capped a three-run third as Eastern Michigan (2-1) took the lead for good at 4-1.
Jay Sadlowe (0-3) took the loss as he lasted just 2 1/3 innings.
Dusty Johnson kept the Eagles off the board and the Vols in the game as he shutout Eastern Michigan for 6 2/3 innings, giving up just two hits.
Tennessee (4-8) tried to mount a two-out rally in the ninth as Hal Bibee drew a walk and Dennis Gomez got hit by a Tomey pitch. But it wasn't meant to be, as Ross Winiemko got Adam Smith to ground out to first to end the scoring threat and pick up the save.
The teams traded single runs in the first as Ben Jones scored on a Vol error for the Eagles and Czarniecki tied the game when Brandon Hopkins grounded out.
