FERRUM, Va. Six runs in the first four innings proved too big a deficit to come back from as the Southern Virginia Baseball team fell to Ferrum 9-2. SVU fell behind early as the Panthers put two men on base and brought them home for the early 2-0 lead.
SVU was unable to find an answer for the Ferrum offense, as the hosts put up 10-hits in the first four innings alone. The Knights meanwhile could only muster 8-hits all game. The Knights were able to register their two runs in the top of the ninth Josh Yarn and Ed Greenhalgh were able to get on base, and were brought home later on.
Derek Snider took the loss as he went six innings and gave up 11-hits and 6-earned runs. Snider struck out 3-batters and walked two. Darrell Brown and Nick Denny came on in relief, but could not stop the Panther offense to give the Knights the chances to get back in the game.
The two runs scored by the Knights represent the second lowest amount they have scored in a game all season. SVU is now 13-8 on the season. The Knights return to action March 27 when they travel to take on Averett in a double header. The Knights lost to the Cougars earlier in the season in an 11-inning thriller. The first game of the double header is scheduled for 12:00 pm.
