March 22, 2014 - Eastern Florida's baseball team dropped a 12-8 Florida College System Activities Association Southern Conference decision to visiting Indian River State College at Bruce Bochy Field on the Melbourne Campus on Saturday.

Eastern Florida collected nine hits. Each team committed an error.
The loss dropped Eastern Florida to 18-9 overall and 6-4 in the conference. Indian River improved to 13-15 and 4-6.
