GREENSBORO – Providence Grove alum Luke Thomas has moved to a role as a starting pitcher for UNC Greensboro’s baseball team the past two weeks.
Thomas, a freshman, was the starter for the Spartans in the opening games of the past two Southern Conference series. He had a no-decision against Virginia Military Institute and a loss at Samford.
Thomas (2-2) made his first 11 collegiate appearances as a reliever. He has one save.
The Spartans (16-16 overall, 4-5 Southern Conference) have a three-game conference series at home against The Citadel with games Friday night and Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
** At Elon, UNC Wilmington’s Trevor Marsh of Asheboro had two hits, including a double, in the second game of Sunday’s doubleheader as the visiting Seahawks won 7-6 against Elon in a matchup of the Colonial Athletic Association’s top two teams.
Marsh, a center fielder, also had a stolen base in the game. He’s batting .325 through 30 games.
Elon won the first game 3-1 after postponements the previous two days reduced the series to two games.
