“Kids are excited for the opportunities that are all ahead of us,” Coach Newland said following the win. “So excited for the month of April to be winding down and gearing up for an amazing May atmosphere.”

Greenville’s Burns went the distance on the mound allowing one earned run on two hits, four walks while striking out 10.
