Cameron Lane in his batting stance

Lynchburg, Va. -- University of Lynchburg's baseball team jumped out to an early lead Tuesday afternoon but eventually fell, 10-2, to Greensboro in non-conference play.

Freshman third baseman Garrett Jackson (Virginia Beach, Va.) went 3-for-5 with two RBI for the Hornets, while freshman designated hitter Cameron Lane (Manassas, Va.) had three hits, two of which were doubles, and scored a run.

Blake Carroll drove in four of the Greensboro runs.

 

THE RUNDOWN

Final: Greensboro 10, Lynchburg 2

Records: Greensboro 18-13, Lynchburg 16-16

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

 

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Lynchburg scored a first-inning run as Lane slugged a one-out double and scored on Jackson's RBI single.

  • Hornets starter Ryan Irby (Midlothian, Va.) tossed five shutout innings to hold the Pride at bay, but the bullpen couldn't hold on. GC scored three runs in the sixth to take the lead and added four more in the seventh.

  • Jackson tripled down the line, again scoring Lane from first, in the bottom of the seventh for Lynchburg's second run.

  • The Pride added three more runs in the ninth to polish off the rout.

 

LOOKING AHEAD
