Senior C.J. Roth homered and was one of six Lancers with multi-hit games as Longwood University’s baseball team had a season-high 15 hits in a 7-4 win on Senior Day against UNC Asheville Sunday afternoon at Buddy Bolding Stadium.

The victory brings the Lancers (27-20, 11-9 Big South) within one of the school record in the Division-I era.

They trailed at two different points in Sunday’s game, but a three-run sixth inning gave them the lead for good.
