Josh Cyr and Kamman sparked the offense with a pair of hits apiece. Cyr singled in two runs in the top of the first inning to give the Eagles all the runs they would need. They added three more in the fifth.

On Thursday, host Mill River knocked off the Otters, 11-6, to improve to 2-0. OV dropped to 2-1 after a pair of one-sided victories.
