Longwood baseball had their backs against the wall after a 6-1 loss to the second seeded Coastal Carolina Chanticleers yesterday, but the Lancers took care of business today bouncing division rival High Point from the Big South Tournament in Lynchburg. Longwood beat the Panthers for the third time this season today, winning 11-3.
The game was a bit back and forth until Longwood blew it open in the fourth inning scoring seven runs to go up 10-2. Leadoff hitter Colton Konvicka had a big day going five for six with four runs and two RBI. Matt Dickason added four hits and four RBI for the Lancers and Scott Burkett also homered.
Most importantly, the Lancers did not deplete their pitching staff in this tournament format. After a shaky start Brandon Vick (6-5) steadied the ship to pitch a complete game while striking out six Panthers.
Longwood’s season will continue Thursday at 3PM when they will take on the sixth seed Gardner-Webb. LU swept the Bulldogs last month in Farmville.
