Baseball Team Loses at Lynchburg, 15-2

LYNCHBURG, Va. (4/14/10) -- Brock Shifflett was 4-6 with six runs batted in (RBI) in Lynchburg College's 15-2 Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) baseball win over Guilford College Wednesday.

Shifflett's two-run double keyed the Hornets' (18-13-1, 8-7 ODAC) four-run second inning that provided all the run support for starting pitcher Conner Thompson (4-3). Lynchburg carried a 6-0 lead into the seventh inning and scored nine times in the final two frames. Thompson threw eight innings of five-hit ball with four strikeouts.

Mike Walters was 4-5 with a homer and three RBI for Lynchburg. He missed hitting for the cycle by a triple. Cameron Grant had three hits, along with teammates Jeff Taylor, Jr., and Jordan Watkins. The Hornets banged out 22 hits against five Quakers' pitchers.

Alex Starbuck had two of the Quakers' (14-21, 5-11 ODAC) five hits in the game. Drew Ward's two-run single in the seventh scored Guilford's two runs.
