Greensboro second baseman Chris Coghlan had an RBI double and scored on Lake County first baseman Matt Whitney’s double. Lake County catcher Matt McBride knocked in Whitney with a sacrifice fly.
Despite the loss, Charleston third baseman Mitch Hilligoss took home the MVP trophy for his 3-for-5 performance, which included a double and the lone run batted in for the South.
