    The Delaware-Longwood information is inaccurate. They played a 4 game series. On Friday, the Blue Hens defeated the Lancers 10-7. On Saturday, 2/21 the teams played a double header. UD scored 10 runs in the top of the ninth to win going away 22-6. In the 7 inning nightcap, Longwood scored 5 in the first and never looked back, defeating the Blue Hens 9-3. On Sunday, the Lancers scored 7 in the bottom of the sixth to secure a 14-7 come from behind win and earn a series split.
