About the Knights

After a flurry of postponed games, Southern Virginia hopes to step up to the plate as it faces NCAA DIII Centennial Conference member Washington College for the first time. The Knights' last contest was a sweep at Hampden-Sydney on March 1. The Knights have been battling the weather to get out on a playable field since that time.

Junior C.J. Andrus leads the Knights with seven hits in 27 at-bats for a .259 batting average. Hunter Allen and senior Tyler King both have a .375 on-base percentage and will look to continue their contributions for this game.

Southern Virginia will need to execute at the plate and have a solid defense to get the victory.

About the Shoremen

The Shoremen are coming off a 3-1 victory over Mount Saint Vincent. Last year's squad ended with a 14-25 overall record while going 5-13 in the Centennial Conference and did not qualify for postseason play.

 

As a team, the Shoremen have a .225 batting average, 12 hits and a combined total of 28 runs. Senior infielder Nick Marinelli and junior outfielder Scott Matthews lead the team with four hits apiece and a .308 batting average. Matthews leads the team with four runs batted in and one homerun. The pitching staff has allowed 39 hits and 30 runs this season and has a combined ERA of 8.38.
