NACOGDOCHES, Texas – Stephen F. Austin right-hander Chase Greening kept the Southeastern Louisiana bats off balance through seven innings Friday as the Lions fell, 4-0, in the opener of a Southland Conference baseball series.

Greening (4-2) and Cory Maltz combined on a seven-hit shutout as Southeastern (25-14, 8-5) fell one game back of SFA (20-17, 9-5) in the conference standings. The Lumberjacks are now in sole possession of first place in the Southland as both Sam Houston State and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi dropped the first game of their respective series. T

he Lumberjacks scored single runs in the third and fifth innings and scored a pair in the seventh as they chased Lion starter Andro Èutura.

Working around a bases-loaded, no-out situation in the third, Èutura allowed just the single run. In the fifth, a pair of two-out singles plated Freddy Villalobos with the game's second run.

Hunter Dozier, the Southland's leading hitter, led off the seventh with a solo home run just inside the left-field foul pole. It was his 11th of the season. Villalobos followed with a double and the Lions elected to bring in Dylan Hills. Villalobos later scored on a sacrifice fly to left.

Greening earned the win while Èutura (0-2) suffered the loss. Sam Roberson led Southeastern at the plate with a 2-for-3 night, including a lead-off double in the fourth.

Saturday, Lion freshman right-hander Tate Scioneaux (4-0, 3.22) draws junior right-hander Kyle Cross (4-3, 3.02) as the series continues at 2 p.m.

The game can be heard in the Hammond area on KSLU-FM (90.9), on the internet through the Southeastern athletics website, as well as on the KSLU iPhone and TuneIn Radio apps. Live stats, courtesy SFA, will be available. Links to audio and stats are located on the baseball schedule page at www.LionSports.net.
