The Panthers took the lead in the third and didn't give it up.  A lead-off walk to #Rand Hutchison# and a wild pitch got the first run in with a #Sam Hill# single.  #Darby Weppner# drove in #J.D. Hulse# on the next at bat.  Then #Brian Higginbotham# finished the inning with a single to plate Hill.

Sam Hill led the Panthers with three hits and two RBI's in the game, getting his second in the sixth with a triple with Hutchison on second.

#Jesse Meier# got his second win of the season with a strong start.  The freshman from nearby Stone Mountain, Ga. went six innings for the Panthers, allowing six hits and two runs.  He got two walks and a strike out in his fourth start at the collegiate level. 

BSC outhit the Lions 11-6 on the day and got their errors down to just three to Piedmont's one.
