One day after learning that its baseball program will be disbanded after this season Winston-Salem State swept a doubleheader over Lock Haven at McCrary Ballpark in Asheboro.

The Rams (16-7) won 4-3 and 3-2 in two seven inning games.

In the first game the Rams won in the bottom of the seventh on a bases-loaded walk. Luke Spiva drew a walk to score E.P. Reese with the game-winning run.

Reese led the Rams going 2 for 3 with two runs scored and a home run. Spiva and Hunter Phillips each had one hit.

Cole Parks went all seven innings to pick up the win. Parks gave up seven hits and struck out nine while giving up three earned runs.

In the second game the Rams won again in the bottom of the seventh when Reese scored again on another bases-loaded walk. Phillips drew the walk to score Reese with the winning run.

Parks, who played left field in the second game, went 2 for 4 with Nick Wil-liams, Reese, Nick Ward and Phillips each picking up one hit.

Jalen Scott went all seven innings to pick up the win as he allowed eight hits and two runs with three strikeouts. Scott improved to 3-2 on the season.

The two teams will play another doubleheader on Sunday at McCrary Park starting at 1 p.m.

The school announced on Friday that the program, now in its ninth season, would be disbanded after this season with the money from the program going toward other sports.
