The University of South Carolina Lancaster Lancers will look to get back on track today when they travel to Newberry for a twin bill with the Newberry College junior varsity baseball team.

The Lancers saw their 2013 baseball record fall to 3-3 with a 4-1 road to Brunswick Community College in Supply, N.C., on Saturday afternoon.

The Lancers were limited to two hits, a pair of doubles which resulted in the lone run for the USCL team.

In the Lancers’ seventh, Wade Arduini doubled home Nick Sergakis, who had doubled earlier in the inning.

Sergakis tallied on Arduini’s double to make it 3-1.

The host Dolphins scored three runs in the sixth inning to snap a scoreless tie and added a single run to cap the three-run win.

Stuart Pound, who worked six frames, took the loss, allowing four hits, three runs, two earned runs, a walk and a hit batsman. Pound, 1-1, struck out six Brunswick batters in the loss.

Dylan Parker worked two frames and yielded two hits, an earned run and a walk. Parker fanned two batters.

USCL was scheduled to play a twin bill on Sunday, Feb. 17, but the game was postponed due to wet field conditions.

The Lancers will be in action March 1-3 when they play in the Pepsi Invitational at Francis Marion University in Florence.

The Lancers are slated to be at home March 16-17 for a four-game stand with the Spartanburg Methodist College Pioneers.

The teams play two games each day.

 SMC is led by veteran head coach Tim Wallace, a Lancaster native  who is assisted by Matt Williams, the son of USCL head baseball coach Steve Williams.
