MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Three members of the No. 13 Georgia College Baseball (27-7, 19-2 PBC) staff combined to hold Lander University (12-24, 6-15 PBC) scoreless over the final eight frames of Sunday's game at John Kurtz Field, a 4-1 Bobcat win.
The victory extends the Bobcat win streak to 10 straight, and gives Georgia College series victories in each of their seven Peach Belt Conference (PBC) battles this year.
Junior Bradly Cammack (Soperton) got the first start of his Bobcat career, throwing six innings. He allowed a run on a sacrifice fly in the first and then settled in, finishing with five hits and three walks while striking out eight. Cammack (7-1) turned things over to sophomore Matt Studdard (Conyers) for the seventh and eighth, scattering a pair of hits and a walk with two whiffs. Junior Logan Howard (Cumming) got the final three outs around a single for his fourth save of the year.
Down 1-0 into the fourth, the Bobcats took the lead. Logan Mattix (Loganville) led off and walked, then came in to score from first on a hit-and-run single off the bat of Nate Schmal (Cumming). Schmal advanced to second on a throwing error on the play, then scored three batters later on a Garrett Green (Bogart) single.
Georgia College doubled its run production in the fifth, as Mattix tripled off the rightfield wall to score Wesley Wommack (Monroe) who reached on a single. Schmal followed with another RBI on a sacrifice fly to cap the scoring.
Schmal finished 3-for-3 with two RBIs and a run. Senior Mike Warren (Atlanta) added two hits in four trips.
The Bobcats are back in action Wednesday, April 11 at 4 p.m., playing host to Shorter University at 4 p.m.
