Greensboro comeback falls short in Sunday’s rubber match at Berry (GA)

Mount Berry, GA – After splitting Saturday’s doubleheader, the Greensboro College Baseball team entered Sunday’s rubber match with the opportunity to take the weekend series. There was a lot of offensive production from both teams today and while they would fall behind early, the Pride staged a comeback but it fell just a little short short as they came away with the loss, 16-12.

The Vikings’ bats were hot in the first inning as they scored five runs to jump out to the early lead. Junior Cameron Edmonds (Whitsett, NC) would get Greensboro on the board with a two-run homerun, but Berry had an answer, scoring another two runs in the bottom of the second inning. With Freshman Brody Gardner (Asheboro, NC) on base in the third inning, Senior Connor Morehouse (Kansas City, MO) came to the plate and drove the ball into left field for the RBI. However, the Vikings were able to score seven runs in their half of the third inning, increasing their advantage to 14-3. Greensboro would get three back with an RBI from Sophomore Myles Vacharasin (Land O’Lakes, FL) and two RBI’s from Sophomore Samuel Hayen (Fort Lauderdale, FL). As the score eventually rose to 16-6, the Pride began to stage a comeback as Hayen homered in the sixth inning, followed by two RBI’s from Morehouse and one each from Freshman Louis Berini (Bahama, NC) and Junior Drake Carrick (Lexington, NC), to pull Greensboro to within four runs. Unfortunately, they were unable to getting any closer and would fall to Berry (GA) by a final score of 16-12.

The Pride were led by Hayen who finished 4-6 with 4 RBI’s and a homerun and Morehouse who went 3-6 with 3 RBI’s. In addition, Varcharasin was 2-3 on the day with an RBI.

Greensboro will be back in action Tuesday, March 7th as they host Hampden-Sydney at Truist Point Stadium in High Point, NC.
