Greensboro, NC - A game that began as an offensive shootout ended up one-sided as North Greenville was defeated by Belmont Abbey 22-12. NGU had a good day offensively, recording 17 hits including a three-run home run by Ryan Brown. However, defense was an issue as six errors were charged to North Greenville while Belmont Abbey committed none. Caanan Cropper, who was the starting pitcher for NGU, was charged with the loss.
