LYNCHBURG, Va. â€“ Matt Morgan threw seven solid innings and Michael Del Buono
had three RBI in Lynchburg Collegeâ€™s 9-2 win over visiting Guilford College
in both teamsâ€™ Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) baseball opener.
Del Buono had an RBI in the Hornetsâ€™ (4-5, 1-0 ODAC) three-run first when
Lynchburg took advantage of three walks and a Guilford error. The Quakers
(3-8, 0-1 ODAC) answered in the second inning on Jay Coxâ€™s two-out, two-run
single, but that was all of the offense Guilford generated against Morgan
and two relievers. Morgan, a senior, scattered five hits and fanned five for
his second win of 2011.
The second of three Guilford errors contributed to Lynchburgâ€™s three-run
fourth inning. Del Buono followed Michael Kenahâ€™s double with a two-run
single in the Hornetsâ€™ three-run fifth. Kenah and Del Buono were two of four
Hornets with two hits on the day. Mike Walters had a two-run single in the
fourth and scored twice.
Guilfordâ€™s Jordan Slate had two hits for the Quakers. Starter Zach Daw (1-1)
pitched into the fifth and took the loss on the mound. David Thomson gave up
two runs in four innings of relief.
