MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The No. 12 Georgia College Baseball program (34-9) took care of business against the Clark Atlanta University Panthers (14-23) in seven innings at John Kurtz Field Wednesday afternoon, 18-5.
The Bobcats got on the board early with a big four-run first inning. Wesley Wommack (Monroe) drove in one of the runs with a RBI single to contribute to the 4-0 lead after one.
Georgia College pushed three more across in the second and third, but broke the game open in the six-spot in the bottom of the fourth. Three of the runs in the fourth came off the bat of Garrett Green (Bogart) who smacked an inside the park home run to put the game out of reach for the Panthers. Green had a big afternoon going 2-for-3 with two runs scored and three RBI. The Bobcats led 13-2 after the first four innings. Green sent a sinking liner toward the line in right, and after the rightfielder dove and missed, Green was off to the races.
Georgia College managed to score two more in the fifth and added three more to that in the sixth to close out the game at a final of 18-5.
Chandler Amason (Grayson) got the nod and tossed a perfect two innings with two strikeouts to snatch his fourth win of the year. The only baserunner he allowed was on a strikeout-wild pitch.
Georgia College is back in action when they travel to No. 5 Columbus State University for a heavyweight matchup Friday, April 27 at 6 p.m.
