CARROLLTON, Ga. – The No. 6 Georgia College Baseball team (5-4) edged the University of West Georgia (2-6) 4-2 Wednesday behind some great pitching from six different arms.

The Bobcats found themselves down 2-1 headed into the top of the seventh. A trio of singles to start the inning loaded them up for first baseman Garrett Green (Bogart). The senior promptly yanked a ball down the third base line, driving in a pair for the 3-2 advantage.

An insurance run came in the eighth on a Cam Hill (Marietta) RBI single.

Six different Bobcats took to the mound for GC. Senior Chandler Amason (Grayson) got the start, going 3 1/3 innings with just a single run and three strikeouts. Lefty Bryce Bowen (Elberton) took over for two frames with one run across. Senior Colin LoCurto (Kennesaw) threw one scoreless inning, picking up the victory (1-0).

Junior lefty Brad Spinner (Roswell) took a scoreless inning, senior righty Perry Keith (LaGrange) picked up an out, and then turned it over to Chris Rolick (Marietta) for the final four outs. Rolick nabbed his second save of the season, stranding one hit and fanning a pair.

Second baseman Cal Gentry (Perry) had four hits in five at-bats, scoring twice and stealing a base. Hill finished with two hits an RBI and a run.

The Bobcats are back in action Friday, Feb. 15 at 6 p.m., playing host to Georgia Southwestern State University (3-4) to kick off Peach Belt Conference (PBC) play. The Hurricanes most recently split a doubleheader with the University of West Alabama Saturday.
