Written by Chris Pendleton

LYNCHBURG, Va.—The Southern Virginia University baseball team dropped its sixth straight game on Tuesday falling 4-13 to Lynchburg College at Fox Field.

Southern Virginia (2-7) recorded only three less hits (10-13) than Lynchburg (7-3) during Tuesday's matchup, but the Knights were not able to convert hits into runs as effectively as the Hornets.

The Knights led 2-1 after three innings, but the Hornets put together three four-run innings during their final five trips to the plate on route to their second consecutive victory.

Sophomore Mitch Stevenson (Muskogee, Okla.) had a solid day at plate for Southern Virginia finishing with 3 hits, 2 runs and a walk. 

Senior Andrew Snider (Lancaster, Calif.) went 2-for-5 with one run and a RBI.

Sophomore Tyler King (San Ramon, Calif.) picked up his third loss of the year allowing 9 runs—7 earned—on 11 hits during 6.0 innings on the mound.

Baseball has a week to recover before traveling to Greensboro, N.C., on Tuesday, Mar. 13 for a doubleheader with Greensboro College beginning at 1 p.m. EDT.
