DELAND, Fla. -

The ETSU baseball team defeated top-seeded Mercer Friday 7-4 in 10 innings. The Bucs need just one win Saturday to advance to Sunday's Atlantic Sun Conference finals.

ETSU trailed 4-3 in the eighth when Kevin Phillips tied it with a homerun. In the top of the tenth, ETSU scored three runs and hung on for a 7-4 victory.

They will face the winner of the Mercer-USC-Upstate match-up Saturday.
