HOW IT HAPPENED
RC took an early 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first on a Hunter Andrews two-run single, and the Maroons stretched it to 8-0 by the middle of the fourth.
Lynchburg got two runs back, one on a run-scoring double-play ball and another on a Maroons throwing error as Atkins stole second, allowing senior third baseman Griffin Wild (Severna Park, Md.) to score and make the score 8-2.
The Hornets scored their third run in the sixth, an RBI single by sophomore shortstop Parker Shaffer (Richmond, Va.) that brought Alvanos in.
Roanoke added three more runs in the top of the ninth to bring the score to its final standing.
Lynchburg finishes the season with a 19-22 record, the team's most wins since the 2014 campaign. The Hornets will look forward to the release of the ODAC's all-conference teams next week.
