GREENSBORO, N.C. – Kyle Newcomb’s two-run homer in the seventh inning broke
a 7-7 tie and lifted visiting Averett University to a 10-7 baseball win at
Guilford College Sunday.

The Cougars (1-5) jumped out to a 7-0 lead thanks to four walks and four hit
batsmen by Guilford (1-5) pitchers. The first three Averett batters in the
sixth inning were hit by a pitch, which loaded the bases. Newcomb had an RBI
single and James Carter delivered a two-run double in the Cougars’ four-run

Averett starter Cody Moore tired in the sixth inning as the Quakers batted
around and hung seven runs on the scoreboard. Guilford’s Jay Cox hit a
two-run double in the sixth and Derek Hardison tied the game with a two-out,
two-run single.

Tyler Long (1-0) relieved Moore and once he worked out of the seventh, the
left-hander settled down to hold Guilford scoreless over the final three

Averett’s Kyle Newcomb was 2-5 with two RBI. Teammate Adam Higgins went 2-3
with a homer, two RBI and three runs scored out of the leadoff spot.

Guilford’s Will Cornelius(Northwest Guilford HS) and Casey Mann both had three hits and an RBI.
