The South Georgia State College Hawks won two of three games against Andrew College recently.
Thursday’s game against Andrew had Charles Wilson on the mound for the first four innings, where he allowed one run in the first, then none in the second and third, walked none, and struck out two. Josh Smith took over on the mound for the remaining four innings, where he walked six, struck out one, and allowed four runs, bringing Andrew’s total to five. SGSC earned three runs, two by Ryan Teifer and one by Blake Chaney, but was unable to overcome Andrew. Andrew won 5-3.
Saturday’s doubleheader against Andrew College had SGSC raring to prove their mettle. Game one was tied 0-0 for the first two innings, and SGSC took the lead in the third by one run scored on a groundout by Drew Johns. SGSC then increased their lead in the fifth earning three more runs. A feeble sixth-inning rally by Andrew College wasn’t enough to take the lead, and SGSC won 4-2.
Game two on Saturday was looking pretty bad for the Hawks, with only one run to Andrew’s two going into the seventh inning. But in the seventh, the Hawks hit it big, scoring four runs and taking the lead. Chase Morris scored two of SGSC’s five total runs, one in the fifth and one in the seventh. Tyler Ammerman, Kristopher Kirkland, and Mikal Flores all scored in the seventh. Andrew College only managed one run in the seventh, and the Hawks took the victory 5-3.
