In the bottom of the eighth, Greenville gave themselves a cushion after Andrew Torbeck scored on an error and Maxie provided another RBI single.

Sam Alendar was the starting pitcher and gave up two runs in four innings, striking out two.

Maxie managed to go 3-for-4. Torbeck was 2-for-4 with three runs scored.

The Panthers (5-8-1) will have their season suspended through at least April 5 as a result of Greenville University's cancellations related to the COVID-19 coronavirus.
