TAMPA, Fla. – The Lander baseball team fell 17-4 to No. 19-ranked Mount Olive to wrap up its opening weekend at the Steinbrenner Field Spring Classic.
Lander cut the deficit to two in the bottom of the fourth as Vincent Addona led off with a double and came around to score.
The Trojans put the game out of reach with an 11-run ninth inning and Lander could only a single run in the bottom of the ninth when BJ Bush walked and scored on a wild pitch.
Lander returns to action next weekend with a three-game series against Millersville at Dolny Stadium.
