SARASOTA , FL. - The Bluffton College baseball team (2-2) dropped a heartbreaker on Wednesday, 16-15 to Southern Virginia in the EMU Spring Classic.
The Beavers started off the day down 4-0 only to rally back as the game continued,
posting a nine-run third inning. The game would not go as planned however with
pulling away with the game in the top of the sixth.
Bluffton smacked out six homers for the contest. Riordan McClain and Jim Dwenger posted one homerun each with Kyle Alberson and Ryan Fiely bolting two homers for the contest. The six homeruns are a Bluffton College single game record. Jared Owens and Fiely posted a double each.
