Baseball topples No. 15 Randolph-Macon, sweeps series

Holden Fiedler throwing to first base from catcher position

Ashland, Va. -- University of Lynchburg's baseball team polished off a season sweep of nationally ranked Randolph-Macon Tuesday with a 13-11 on the road in Old Dominion Athletic Conference play.

The Hornets rallied for five runs in the second and four in the sixth and eighth innings to win the slugfest.

Freshman catcher Holden Fiedler (Henrico, Va.) doubled, walked thrice and drove in three runs for Lynchburg in the win. Freshman second baseman PJ Alvanos (Annapolis, Md.) and freshman center fielder Carrson Atkins (Charlottesville, Va.) each collected two hits and three RBI as well.

 

THE RUNDOWN

Final: Lynchburg 13, No. 15 Randolph-Macon 11

Records: Lynchburg (18-18, 11-9 ODAC), No. 15 Randolph-Macon (19-8-1, 14-5-1 ODAC)

Venue: Estes Park, Randolph-Macon College, Ashland, Va.

 

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • After R-MC took an early 2-0 lead, Lynchburg responded with five runs in the second. Alvanos plated the first run with a bases-loaded walk, followed by Atkins' two-run double that put the Hornets ahead. Sophomore shortstop Parker Shaffer (Richmond, Va.) and graduate student right fielder Kinston Carson (Tappahannock, Va.) each added sacrifice flies in the inning.

  • The Yellow Jackets took an 8-5 lead with runs in the third, fourth and fifth innings, but Lynchburg struck back again with four in the sixth. Fiedler delivered the big blow, a three-run double.

  • R-MC rallied again in the bottom of the sixth for an 11-9 lead, but Lynchburg again had the answer, this time in the eighth. Alvanos' two-run single put the visitors ahead for good, and Atkins added the final run with a single to center field.

  • Sophomore left-hander Adam Dofflemyer (Harrisonburg, Va.) earned the win with a scoreless 1 ⅓ innings of relief, while sophomore right-hander Santiago Meneses (Guatemala City, GUATEMALA) shut the Yellow Jackets out in the final two innings for the save.

 

LOOKING AHEAD

Lynchburg will finish regular-season conference play Saturday, April 27 with a noon doubleheader at Roanoke College played at Salem Kiwanis Field.
