Johnson City, Tenn. -- UNC Greensboro freshman Scooter Michael pitched a complete game three-hitter and was helped by 20 hits from his offense in an 11-0 win against East Tennessee State in Southern Conference baseball action at Cardinal Park.

Leadoff hitter Doug Schutt went 4-5 with two runs scored and one RBI. Chris Mittendorf and Chris Cook also collected three hits.

Of the Bucs (21-30, 12-17 SoCon) three hits, second baseman Brandon Cross stroked two and Tim Turner had one.

UNCG (27-25, 17-11 SoCon) engineered two runs on two hits in the first. Schutt led off the game with a single and Chad Hayes followed with a walk. Schutt later scored on a fielders choice off the bat of Jesse Martin, and Hayes came home on an RBI groundout by Nick Lockhart. The Spartans loaded the bases in the second but Buc starter Donnie Sharp enduced a groundout to end the threat.

The visitors broke open the game with a five-run third. After a single and a strikeout, the Spartans strung together four consecutive hits. Lavender highlighted the frame with a three-run homer over the right field wall.
