MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – All four of the runs for Georgia College Baseball (16-13) came in the seventh inning and beyond, but it wasn't enough, as the Bobcats fell to Florida Tech (16-12) 7-4 Friday night at John Kurtz Field.

The Panthers jumped in front early, scoring the first seven runs of the game, including a three-spot in the third.

For Georgia College, shortstop Jayson Cook (Smyrna) plated the first run with a sacrifice fly in the seventh. Second baseman Cal Gentry (Perry) doubled home a run in the eighth, and rightfielder Wesley Wommack (Monroe) tagged a two-run blast over the wall in right center a batter later, but the rally would halt there.  

Righty starter Bradly Cammack (Soperton) took the loss (3-3) in five innings of work. The Bobcats threw five total arms at the Panthers, the most successful being freshman lefty Luc Scudellari (Roswell) who retired eight batters without a run, including four strikeouts.

Wommack finished 3-for-4 with two RBIs and a run. Gentry added a 2-for-3 effort with an RBI.

The Bobcats complete the series with FIT tomorrow, March 30 at noon with a doubleheader.
