Augustana (Ill.) used six hits and an error to build a 4-0 lead after four innings and held on for a 4-2 win over Hanover in baseball action Monday in Lake Myrtle, Fla.
Hanover plated a run in the fifth inning and another in the seventh to cut the margin in half, but slipped to 1-2 this season with the setback.
Kevin Sears doubled to lead off the fifth and later scored after a pair of groundouts for the Panthers' first run.
Matt Brooks drew a two-out walk in the top of the seventh inning and eventually moved to second base on a wild pitch before scoring on a double off the bat of Matt Newman.
Hanover totaled eight hits in the game, and drew six walks, but stranded 13 runners. Newman led the Panthers' offense with three hits, including an RBI, while Sears had a pair of singles.
Clint Jones was tagged with the loss after allowing five hits and four earned runs in three and two-thirds innings on the mound. Alex Lantz and Matt Powers combined for four and one-third innings of three-hit, scoreless relief.
Hanover opened the 2013 season by splitting a doubleheader with Alma (Mich.) on Sunday in Chain of Lakes Park, Fla. The Panthers lost the opener 3-2 but rallied to win game two 7-0.
Hanover faces Gwynedd-Mercy (Pa.) in Chain of Lakes, Fla. today.
