GREENVILLE, N.C. – Kenny Towns launched a pair of grand slams and drove in eight runs as the No. 25 Virginia baseball team opened the 2013 season with 14-4 victory over East Carolina on Friday afternoon in front of 3,511 fans at Clark-LeClair Stadium.
Towns hit the grand slams in the first and seventh innings – both to the opposite field. They were the first two career home runs for Towns, who entered the year with 12 career RBI. Towns recorded the most RBI by a UVa player in a game since Brandon Guyer had nine on March 13, 2007, against Niagara.
