Despite a solid showing on the mound, The Pride baseball team could not overcome two late inning runs in a 2-0 defeat at Christopher Newport on Sunday. The Captains tallied a run apiece in the sixth and seventh innings and kept Greensboro off the scoreboard to earn the series sweep.
Jacob Cadle tossed 6.1 strong innings for The Pride, but gave up two runs on five hits to take the loss. David Shilling came in to finish out the final 1.2 innings in spotless relief, only allowing one hit.
Greensboro had a few opportunities to take control early, stranding two runners in the second and third innings. Pride runners reached as far as third base in both frames. Later in the sixth, Michael Cobb was thrown out from left field at the plate attempting to give Greensboro the first run of the day. The Pride would put only one runner on base for the rest of the game.
Greensboro only managed four hits on the day, with James Feldmann recording a team high two. Bill Wooding and Jon Krecicki each added one hit as well.
The Pride fall to 7-5 overall and 2-2 in the USA South with the loss. Greensboro will be on the road on Tuesday, travelling to Hampden-Sydney for a 3 p.m. game.
