GREENSBORO, N.C. – Michael Del Buono was 4-for-6 with a homer and four RBI
in Lynchburg College’s 15-9 Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) baseball
win at Guilford College Sunday.

Del Buono, who had two hits and three RBI in Saturday’s 9-3 Lynchburg win
over Guilford (3-9, 0-2 ODAC), had a two-run homer in the Hornets’ (5-5, 2-0
ODAC) four-run second inning. He also had a run-scoring single in the third
and an RBI double in the fourth as Lynchburg built a 13-3 lead through six
and a half innings.

Michael Mansfield, who replaced starter Brian Breedlove after two innings,
fanned seven in four scoreless innings of relief. He scattered three hits
and walked one to even his record at 1-1 on the season.

The Hornets banged out a season-high 22 hits off of five Guilford pitchers.
Richard Palase was 4-for-6 and Chris Colquhoun went 3-for-6. Colquhoun, who
also had four runs batted in, led off the third inning with a solo home run
and had a two-run single in the fifth. Michael Kenah singled three times and
scored four runs. Jordan Watkins also had three hits and scored twice.

Fueled by two of Lynchburg’s six errors, Guilford scored four unearned runs
in the ninth inning. Nine different Quakers had hits, including Derek
Hardison, whose RBI double gave Guilford a short-lived 1-0 first-inning
lead. Hardison also had an RBI groundout in the seventh to raise his
team-leading RBI Count to 13. Rookie starting pitcher Borja Jones-Berasaluce
(0-2) allowed seven runs on nine hits in two-plus innings.

Guilford hosts Immaculata College Wednesday (3/2) in a noon doubleheader.
