GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Southern Virginia University baseball team fell 8-4 and 12-1 in a non-conference doubleheader at Greensboro College Saturday afternoon.
A three-run ninth wasn't enough in game one for the Knights (1-5), who were unable to bounce back from an 8-1 deficit in the final inning.
Greensboro (5-0) answered in the bottom of the next three innings to take a 4-1 lead. The Pride then scored three runs in the seventh and another in the eighth for an 8-1 lead.
Tayler Peterson pitched six innings and recorded four strikeouts in his first loss of the season.
In game two the Knights were only able to get a single run on the board in the fourth inning, with McNally's fourth RBI of the season on a sacrifice fly which scored Hilburn.
The Knights will return to Lynchburg on Wednesday before opening the home season on Friday afternoon. First pitch on Wednesday is scheduled for 3 p.m.
