It seemed as if two different RedStorm offenses took to the field at VA Memorial Stadium on Friday.

Fourteen of Rio Grande's 15 runs on the day came in the second game of a doubleheader with Miami-Hamilton. The RedStorm split the day with the Harriers, losing the first contest 7-1 and winning the second 14-6.

In the first game, Rio tallied just four hits, two of which coming from sophomore catcher Austin Hall.

The RedStorm stranded seven runners in the loss.

The second game was quite the opposite for the RedStorm offense, who earned extra help from atrocious fielding by the Harriers.

Rio earned 14 runs on 14 hits and an astronomical eight errors by the Miami-Hamilton defense. Just five of Rio Grande's runs were earned.

Leading the way on offense for the RedStorm was third baseman Luis Jiminez. The freshman from Puerto Rico was 3 for 3 with two runs and two RBIs.
