BC Tops LC, 9-2

Eagles to Play Yellow Jackets

LYNCHBURG, Va. --- Tyler Milstead pitched a complete-game four-hitter Friday night to lead Bridgewater to a 9-2 victory over Lynchburg College.

With the victory, the Eagles move to the championship round Saturday where they will meet Randolph-Macon at 1:00 p.m. If the Eagles win, the deciding game will follow.

Milstead dominated the Hornets as he flirted with a no-hitter, retiring the first 20 batters he faced.

The Bridgewater offense scratched out a run in the third when Bryan Sanderson tripled with two outs to score Brett Howell with the game's first run.

The Eagles added four runs in the fifth to lead 5-0. Sanderson, Snow and Kirk delivered RBI base hits for Bridgewater.

The Hornets got their first baserunner with two outs in the seventh when Mike Walters singled. A single by Michael Buono, followed by a two-run double from Michael Kenah cut the Eagles lead to 5-2.

Bridgewater answered with four runs in the bottom of the seventh to push its lead to 9-2.

Milstead finished the night with six strikeouts and did not walk a batter.
