College Baseball Final – Greensboro 11, Guilford 9

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Jason Feldmann’s two-run double keyed Greensboro College’s five-run eighth inning that helped the Pride past Guilford College, 11-9, in Tuesday night’s baseball game at NewBridge Bank Park.

Greensboro (17-10) overcame a 6-0 fifth-inning deficit to sweep the two-game season series with Guilford (13-13). The Pride batted around and tied the game with six runs in the bottom of the fifth inning. Feldmann delivered a two-out, two-run single in the frame and scored on Steve Pfeiffer’s homer one batter later.

Guilford regained a 7-6 edge on Casey Mann’s sacrifice fly in the seventh, but Greensboro erupted for five runs in the eighth inning to take an 11-7 advantage. Two walks, a hit batsman, a wild pitch and a catcher’s interference call prolonged the decisive frame. Bill Wooding’s run-scoring groundout plated the go-ahead run before Feldmann doubled two batters later.

Feldmann went three-for-five with four runs batted in. Pfeiffer and Seth Caison had two hits apiece for Greensboro. David Schilling (4-2) picked up the win in relief, despite yielding two unearned runs in the ninth.

Sophomore John Macon Smith (Greensboro, N.C./Western Guilford (Western Carolina)) paced the Quakers with three doubles and three RBI. D.J. Phillips had two hits, including a two-run hit in Guilford’s five-run fifth. Justin Pittman (Archdale, N.C./Trinity) also had two hits and stole a base. Reliever Ryan Lindsay (2-2) threw scoreless innings in the sixth and seventh innings before running into problems in the eighth.
