High Point, N.C. -- University of Lynchburg baseball freshman Benton Jones hit two home runs against Greensboro Tuesday afternoon.
Jones' pair of solo shots powered No. 12 Lynchburg's 13-3 win over the Pride.
Josh Gjormand made his first-career start and pitched four innings with two strikeouts and two earned runs. Logan Tapman relieved Gjormand in the 5th and delivered three Ks over two innings to earn his first-collegiate win.
Tapman took over on the bump with Lynchburg already leading 6-2. The Hornets added on to their lead in the 7th and 8th. Jackson Harding scored on a wild pitch, and Carrson Atkins scored Ethan Smith on a sacrifice fly in the 7th. Jones smashed his second homer of the day to deep right-center field for the third run of the inning. His first home run was a line drive 345 feet down the right field line in the 3rd.
The Hornets scored four more in the 8th to go up 13-3. Avery Neaves and Logan Webster scored on wild pitches, Riley O'Donovan scored on a Gavin Collins sac fly, and Holden Fiedler doubled home Harding.
Harding went 4-5 and scored four runs in the game. Sean Pokorak made his first-collegiate start behind the dish and got two hits with an RBI and a walk.
