EAGLE POINT ' Chris Boyd, Ryan Augino and Mark Farrell smacked two hits apiece to spark Eagle Point to an 8-6 home victory over Phoenix in non-conference baseball action at The Yard on Wednesday.
The Eagles (4-0) bolted to a 6-0 edge through three innings, but the Pirates (1-2) rallied with a four-run fourth to make it a game.
Brady Rhodes and Kevin Hudnall laced two hits each to pace Phoenix's seven-hit attack.
Phoenix has got a good club, Eagle Point head coach Tom Britton said. They're gonna win a lot of games.
Eagles starting pitcher Ron Depuy (2-0) allowed just one hit in three shutout innings.

We've been balanced so far, Britton said of his team's offense, which produced eight hits in all Wednesday. Everybody's hitting pretty good.
