PEMBROKE, N.C. – Downed in part by a nine-run inning, the Georgia College Baseball team (13-12, 7-7 PBC) fell to UNC Pembroke (15-12, 5-8 PBC) 20-5 on the road Friday night.
UNCP scored nine runs in a terror of a third inning, tallying six hits, a walk and a hit batsman while also taking advantage of a Bobcat error.
The Bobcats didn't have an answer, but showed some life in a three-run seventh on a bases-clearing double from designated hitter Will Hudgins (Dunwoody, Georgia).
Hudgins finished 2-for-4 with the three RBIs. Centerfielder Cam Hill (Marietta, Georgia) had three hits and a double. Rightfielder Wesley Wommack (Monroe, Georgia) added two hits, while reserve outfielder Shane Connahan (Beaver Springs, Pennsylvania) came off the bench to go 2-for-2 with a run.
Senior righty Bradly Cammack (Soperton, Georgia) took the loss in three innings of work. The Bobcats threw five total arms at UNCP, the most successful being sophomore righty Tristen Thompson (Bishop, Georgia) who threw the eighth, surrendering a run with two strikeouts.
The Bobcats continue the series with UNCP tomorrow, March 23 at 2 p.m. with a doubleheader
