TAMPA, Fla. -  The second-ranked team in the country looked every bit as advertised Sunday, as No. 22 Georgia College Baseball (3-3) fell 11-1 at No. 2 University of Tampa (4-2).

Two big innings did in the Bobcats, a four-run fifth and a five-run sixth.

The lone Georgia College run came in the sixth, when rightfielder Wesley Wommack (Monroe, Georgia) drove in centerfielder Logan Mattix (Loganville, Georgia) with a single to right.

Mattix was the only multi-hit performer for the Bobcats, going 3-for-4 with a run scored and a pair of doubles.

Starter Chandler Amason (Grayson, Georgia) took the loss in 4 2/3 innings of work, allowing six runs. Junior Brooks Luther (Dallas, Georgia) was the team's most effective pitcher of the day, going 1 2/3 scoreless, allowing one hit.

The Bobcats are back in action Wednesday, Feb. 14 at 3 p.m., playing host to the University of West Georgia.
