MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Getting a career-best start from senior Connor Wilson (Newnan), the Georgia College Baseball team (21-14) beat Clark Atlanta University (9-20), 10-3 at John Kurtz Field Wednesday.
The victory was head coach Jason Eller's 100th in a Bobcat uniform, coming in just season three.
Wilson threw a strong six shutout innings, scattering three hits and two walks. He also fanned three. Wilson (1-0) faced the minimum for four of the six frames.
The Bobcats jumped in front in the first on an RBI single from rightfielder Wesley Wommack (Monroe) and a sacrifice fly from third baseman Garrett Green (Bogart). GC scored in four of the first five innings.
Wommack had a big day, adding a sacrifice fly in the fifth and a solo home run in the seventh. He finished 2-for-4 with three RBIs and a run; the home run was his fifth of the season.
Second baseman Cal Gentry (Perry) continued his hot hitting as well, going 3-for-5 with a double, four RBIs and a run. Defending Peach Belt Conference (PBC) Freshman of the Week Cam Hill (Marietta) added two hits in three trips, three runs scored and an RBI from the leadoff spot.
The win makes Georgia College 13-0 against the Panthers all-time.
In the ballgame, Wommack's three RBIs gave the senior 169 in his career, tied for 10th in Georgia College history with All-American Mike DeVeaux (2006). Wommack also jumped to 390 career total bases, passing DeVeaux into 10th in school history.
