Baseball Team Second in the Conference


Written by Aeryn McMurtry

RC baseball currently holds a 24-7 overall record and a 13-3 ODAC record, putting them second for the conference. The men finished March with a 15-game winning streak that ended with a close loss to Ferrum in early April.

Since then, games have progressed at a much more manageable pace. Later in the week, RC beat Lynchburg 8-4 and then lost to Virginia Wesleyan in a doubleheader over the weekend. The next week followed the same pattern, with RC beating Averett 6-5 and losing 8-5 to Guilford on Wednesday, April 11 before turning around and beating Guildford 15-5 the next day. This game kicked off what is so far a three game winning streak.

On Tuesday, April 17, baseball won at home 15-6 against Greensboro, followed by a 5-3 against Emory & Henry on Wednesday.

RC baseball only has six games left to play in the regular season. Their next games are a doubleheader on Saturday, April 21st against Washington and Lee at 12:00 and 2:30 p.m. Come out and enjoy the sunny Salem weather and support your fellow Maroons this weekend at Salem Memorial Stadium as they take on Washington and Lee on Saturday and Ferrum on Sunday at 1:00 p.m.
