Six pitcher combined on the two-hit blanking on Tuesday.
The Seahawks own a 14-8-1 advantage in the NU series and stands at 5-6-1 at Friendman Diamond. This series will go a long way in determining seeding for the CAA tournament. William & Mary visits College of Charleston this weekend and both have clinched first day byes.
