VCU tops LU baseball with bases-clearing triple

Published 11:53 am Thursday, March 24, 2016

Logan Farrar had just the second hit of the game for VCU, but his big bases-clearing triple gave VCU a three-run lead in the fourth inning as the Rams beat Longwood University baseball, 5-2, Tuesday night at The Diamond.

The Lancers put together several rallies early, but weren’t able to push across a run until the fourth inning when Carlos Garrido drove in Colton Konvicka. Four Lancers had multi-hit games at VCU, including Konvicka, who also scored both Longwood runs.

Konvicka, Garrido and Brandon Harvell made up the bottom third of the order and each finished with 2-for-4 games at the plate. The bottom three hitters finished a combined 6-for-12 with both of Longwood’s RBI.
