Originally scheduled for Wednesday, the game was moved up 48 hours in an attempt to beat the expected snowstorm over the next two days.
That schedule change worked for the Hornets (10-4, 2-1 ODAC) as the squad banged out 12 hits in downing the Eagles (11-7-1, 1-4).
After the two teams each scored two runs in the second, SU took the lead good with a two-run sixth.
Both teams again scored a pair of runs in the eighth before Bridgewater made matters interesting with a one-out solo home run in the ninth.
Senior Michael Bugonowicz, who came on to start the ninth, then closed the door with a groundout to third and a flyout to right.
Bugonowicz, who struck out the Eagles leadoff hitter in the ninth on three pitches, earned his second save of the spring with the effort.
Junior Robert Klinchock was the winner on the mound, allowing four runs on six hits and four walks in 7 1/3 innings. Klinchock (2-1) struck out four.
Tyler Ritenour got the final two outs of the eighth before turning it over to Bugonowicz.
Freshman Henry Delavergne, who finished 2-for-4 with two RBi drove in those sixth inning runs with a double to left. He plated Chase Smallwood and Nick Goode, who had reached on a single to left and a double to right center, respectively.
SU scored its two runs in the eighth on two hits, three walks and two Eagles errors. Robert Marcelle ended up with the game-winning RBI by drawing a bases loaded walk.
Smallwood and Tristan Baker both had three hits with the latter also driving in a pair thanks to a second inning single up the middle.
