Lynchburg, Va. -- Lynchburg College's baseball team earned its first Old Dominion Athletic Conference of the 2018 season Sunday afternoon, coming from behind to knock off Guilford, 10-5, on LC's Fox Field.

The Hornets fell behind early but rallied with three runs in the fifth and six in the sixth to force a weekend series split.

Sophomore right-hander Graham Boggio (Midlothian, Va.) pitched four shutout innings in relief to earn his second win of the season, picking up a  solid relief outing by freshman righty Michael Reiskind (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.). Reiskind allowed a three-run double to the first batter he faced in the third inning but held the Quaker offense hitless for the next three frames.

Senior right fielder Will Harris (Halifax, Va.) led the Hornet offense, driving in three runs on a 1-for-3 day that included a two-RBI triple. Junior shortstop Thomas Powell (Stanardsville, Va.) and sophomore left fielder Shawn Allen (Columbus, N.J.) each drove in a pair, capitalizing on five walks drawn by the bottom three hitters in the LC order.

 

THE RUNDOWN

Final: Lynchburg 10, Guilford 5

Records: Lynchburg (6-3, 1-1 ODAC), Guilford (4-5-1, 1-1 ODAC)

Venue: James C. Fox Field, Lynchburg College, Lynchburg, Va.

 

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Guilford leapt out to an early lead, scoring once in the second and four times in the third, making use of a solo homer and three consecutive walks to start the inning. Reiskind entered the game with the bases loaded and nobody out and was tagged for a bases-clearing double by GC's Trevor Denton, but the freshman induced three groundouts to strand the Quakers' second baseman and avoid further damage.

  • Lynchburg got on the board in the fourth thanks to a two-out RBI single by senior center fielder Brad Hylton (Danville, Va.), and the Hornets cut the deficit to one with three runs the following inning.

  • The Hornets exploded for six runs in the sixth, the big blow being Harris' triple in the left-center field gap, which senior first baseman Matt Ward (Newton, N.C.) followed with a double of his own.

  • Boggio slammed the door on the Quakers, facing only 14 batters over four innings. He got into trouble with back-to-back singles to start the seventh, but a double-play ball and a flyout kept the inning clean, and Guilford didn't threaten again.

 

LOOKING AHEAD

Lynchburg returns to non-conference action on Monday, when they will play host to Averett for a 2 p.m. single game.
