GREENSBORO, NC-The Hampden-Sydney baseball team took a 4-1 loss to Greensboro Tuesday night at Leonard Park in Greensboro, North Carolina. With the loss, the Tigers fall to 4-6 overall while the Pride improves to 7-3.
Freshman Garrett Birnbaum (Moseley, VA/Cosby) started on the mound allowing two runs on seven hits in 4.0 innings of work but took the loss. Billy Nixon (Sedley, VA/Southampton) gave up two runs on two hits in an inning, and Adam Netherland (Powhatan, VA/Powhatan) and Aaron Van Allen (Danville, VA/Tunstall) each pitched one scoreless inning.
The Pride, however, scored two runs in the fourth and fifth that proved to be enough for the victory. Michael Cobb picked up the victory after allowing one run on just two hits in six innings.
Hampden-Sydney returns to action Thursday, March 1 as it hosts the Captains of Christopher Newport University. First pitch is set for 3:00 pm.
