NORFOLK, Va. -

The University of Southern Mississippi added a link to its longest winning streak of the season Saturday, pounding out a 9-4 Conference USA victory at Old Dominion University.

The 11th-ranked Golden Eagles (31-11, 15-4 C-USA) won their eighth consecutive game, surpassing a seven-game streak forged earlier this season. USM cranked out 15 hits against the Monarchs (12-28, 5-15) to lock down its 11th consecutive conference series.

Every USM starter had at least one hit, with Gabe Montenegro, Luke Reynolds, Hunter Slater, Daniel Keating, Bryant Bowen and LeeMarcus Boyd each cracking two hits apiece. Keating, Slater and Mason Irby had two-run hits, while Reynolds, Montenegro and Matthew Guidry also run-scoring hits.

USM starter Stevie Powers went four innings, allowing three runs on eight hits. He struck out one and didn’t walk a batter. Trent Driver (3-0) picked up the win in relief, allowing a run on a hit in 2 1/3 innings.

Keating got USM on the board in the second when he sent his fourth home run of the season over the left-center field wall at the Bud Metheny Baseball Complex for a 2-0 lead.

ODU’s Erik Scott had run-scoring double in the third inning to make it 2-1, but Guidry and Reynolds had back-to-back run-scoring doubles off ODU starter Morgan Maguire in the top of the fourth inning.

McGuire (3-5) allowed four runs on eight hits over six innings. He walked four and struck out five.

The  Monarchs got within 4-3 in the bottom of the fourth inning on Jimbo Reemsnyder’s two-run double before Irby came through with a two-run single in the seventh inning for a 6-3 edge.

Stock’s second run-scoring double of the game pulled ODU back with 6-4, but Slater had two-run single in the eighth inning and Montenegro drove home the final run of the game with a single in the top of the ninth inning.

Stock and Matt Schwarz each had three of ODU’s 10 hits.

The teams wrap up the three-game series at 11 a.m. Sunday.
