Radford baseball takes two of three from HPU
The High Point University baseball team dropped its weekend series to Radford after falling to the Highlanders 8-3 on Sunday afternoon at Williard Stadium. Junior Brady Williamson went 4 for 4 in the loss for HPU.
“You have to give Radford all the credit in the world,” HPU head coach Craig Cozart said. “They got bases-loaded hits against our two best bullpen arms. They out played us today and won the series. There are still a lot of games for us so we need to have a short memory and get ready to play Clemson on Wednesday.”
Freshman Andre Scrubb took the loss for the Panthers, dropping to 2-5 on the season. Scrubb gave up three runs on four hits and two walks over 3 1/3 innings while striking out one.
