The Florence RedWolves played late into the night in a double header with the Lexington County Blowfish, winning game one 8-6 and having game two held up after inclement weather on Wednesday night at Sparrow Stadium.

 

Game 1

 

The RedWolves offense jumped out to an early lead in game one by scoring three runs in the bottom of the second inning. The scoring was highlighted by RBI singles by McLendon Sears (College of Charleston) and Brock Hallum (LIU-Brooklyn), and the scoring was capped when Kyle Gensler (Charlotte) reached on a fielder's choice. 

 

Florence would continue to add with four in the fourth inning on RBI singles by Ben Peden (The Citadel), Sears, and Hallum. Bryson Smith (Texas) also aided the scoring in the inning with a sac fly.

 

Florence would add on one more time on Peden solo home run in the bottom of the six.

 

But Lexington would battle back with five in the top of the seventh, before Mark Leonard (Tennessee Tech) would get a ground out to end the game.

 

Leonard would pick up the save tossing two thirds of an inning allowing a run on one hit.

 

Jacob Grenus (Lincoln Memorial) would pick up the win after tossing six innings allowing one unearned run on three hits while striking out eight.

 

Game 2

 

The RedWolves immediately took the lead in the bottom of first when Greg Vaughn (LIU-Brooklyn) doubled home Simone.

 

Florence would add one more in the bottom of fifth when Vaughn singled home Hulecki to make it 2-0.

 

Will Abbott (Florence Darlington Tech) went six innings allowing no runs on four hits while striking out six.
