Dolphins receive help from Murphy in win
ATHENS, Ga. -- Gimpy Daniel Murphy returned to the Jacksonville lineup for the first time in seven games to spark the Dolphins.
Starting as a designated hitter instead of his normal station at third base, Murphy singled once and doubled twice to raise his average to .401, driving in one run in a two-run eighth. Murphy had not started a game since injuring his right knee against Mercer May 12.
Jacksonville (43-18) picked up its first regional win since beating Bethune-Cookman May 26, 2001. D.J. Ackley (7-4) faced just three batters over the minimum through six innings before Sacred Heart (26-30) mounted any threat.<
