GREENSBORO, N.C. – Visiting Piedmont College took advantage of Guilford
College’s shaky pitching and fielding in a 19-0 season-opening baseball win
Sunday. The Lions (1-0) got seven shutout innings from Kevin Caldwell and
five strikeouts in two scoreless frames from reliever Ed Cook.

Six Guilford pitchers combined to issue 11 walks and the Quakers committed
seven errors, which helped prolong Piedmont’s 21-hit attack. Dave Bartek had
four hits and three stolen bases out of the number-nine hole and his
brother, Dale, added three hits and three RBI from the number-eight spot.
Kyle Davis also had three hits and scored three times. Catcher Garrett
Lovelace contributed three runs batted in for Piedmont.

Caldwell kept Guilford hitters off balance for most of the game and yielded
four hits and no walks. Cook took over in the eighth inning and fanned five
of the seven batters he faced, yielding only a pinch-double to Zach
Montalbano, Guilford’s lone extra-base hit of the game.

The teams conclude the season series Monday at 2:15 at Guilford’s McBane
Field.
