MOBILE, Ala-- The University of Mobile baseball team picked up a non-conference doubleheader sweep of Lyon College Tuesday, winning the opener 6-3 in 7, and taking the finale 4-3 in 8 innings.
Mobile (16-6, 2-1) visits Lee University for a 3-game series this weekend, beginning with a 4 pm game on Friday.

Ben Negus led the way at the plate with a 3-4 effort from the leadoff spot. Cody Barber finished 1-2 with 1 RBI and 1 run.
The teams traded single runs for the first 1.5 innings until the Rams went ahead for good with a pair of runs in the bottom of the 2nd. Derek Bourgeois swiped 3rd and scored on a wild throw and Negus capped the inning with a 2-out, RBI-single.
Mobile put the game away with a 3-spot in the 5th, as the Rams capitalized on a pair of Lyon errors. Barber singled home won and later scored on a wild pitch.
