MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The No. 6 Georgia College Baseball team (9-5, 4-1 PBC) couldn't overcome eight errors in a 5-3 loss to USC Aiken (11-4, 3-1 PBC) Friday night at John Kurtz Field.
The Bobcat pitching staff did everything they could to make up for the defensive woes, as four arms combined to hold the Pacers to seven hits, no earned runs and just one walk while fanning 17. Starter Bradly Cammack (Soperton) was the best of the bunch, throwing 6 1/3 innings with two hits, no walks and 11 strikeouts. At one point, Cammack recorded seven strikeouts in a row.
GC took a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the second, getting an RBI triple from catcher Austin Holloway (Social Circle) and an RBI single from leftfielder Jay Saunders (Moultrie) in the inning. The Pacers waited until the seventh, posting a four-run inning to push back in front.
Holloway finished 2-for-4 with the RBI and a run, while Saunders was also 2-for-4 with the RBI.
The Bobcats are back in action tomorrow, March 2 in a doubleheader to close the series with the Pacers.
