Baseball wins wild one over Averett

Garrett Jackson scoring a run

Lynchburg, Va. -- For the second time this week, University of Lynchburg's baseball team dug out of an early hole for a big midweek win, 15-7, at home against non-conference foe Averett.

The Hornets trailed 5-0 after the top of the first, but Lynchburg rallied for five runs in the sixth and seven in the seventh to take control of the ballgame.

Freshman designated hitter Holden Fiedler (Henrico, Va.) went 3-for-5 with three RBI, while freshman third baseman Garrett Jackson (Virginia Beach, Va.) added two hits, three RBI, and three runs.

Freshman first baseman Cameron Lane (Manassas, Va.) scored three runs out of the leadoff spot in the Lynchburg batting order, and freshman catcher Kaden Warren (Berryville, Va.) had two RBI and scored twice.

 

THE RUNDOWN

Final: Lynchburg 15, Averett 7

Records: Lynchburg 10-13, Averett 4-21

Venue: James C. Fox Field, University of Lynchburg, Lynchburg, Va.

 

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Averett made use of five hits and two Lynchburg errors to score five times in the top of the first. Lynchburg struck back for a run on Jackson's RBI groundout in the bottom half.

  • Sophomore right-hander Michael Reiskind (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) calmed things down for the Hornets with 2 ⅔ shutout innings.

  • The Cougars scored on a wild pitch to lead 6-1 in the top of the sixth, but Lynchburg pulled the drain plug in the bottom half. Warren tripled home a pair of runs to start the waterfall, followed by Jackson hitting into a run-scoring Cougars error and Fiedler's two-run double that tied the score at 6.

  • Averett retook the lead with a run in the seventh, but the Hornets struck back for seven in the inning. Freshman left fielder Kevin Chung (South Riding, Va.) tied the game with a sacrifice fly, Jackson's single put the Hornets ahead, and Lynchburg poured it on to lead 13-7 after the inning.

  • Jackson and Fiedler added RBI knocks in the eighth to bring the score to its final standing.

 

LOOKING AHEAD

Lynchburg will travel west for the weekend to play at Emory & Henry Saturday in an Old Dominion Athletic Conference doubleheader. Game 1 is scheduled for noon.
