ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – The Georgia College Baseball team (21-15, 11-9 PBC) was upended in the series opener at Flagler College (22-17, 14-8 PBC), falling 6-4 in a walk-off thriller Friday.

Tied 4-4 into the bottom of the ninth and one out away from extra innings, the Saints got a two-out single from first baseman Aaron Anderson. Catcher Jason Moore followed by taking a 2-2 pitch over the left field fence for the win.

The Bobcats got in front with two runs in the first, taking advantage of two errors. Flagler evened things out in the bottom half, and took a 3-2 lead in the third. Centerfielder Cam Hill (Marietta, Georgia) tied the game in the fifth with a double to bring in Jayson Cook (Smyrna, Georgia).

The Saints were up again 4-3 after seven, and the top of the ninth brought in the tying run for GC again, capitalizing on another Flagler error. That set up Moore's heroics in the bottom half.

Hill finished 3-for-5 with a run and an RBI. The loss went to reliever Bradly Cammack (Soperton, Georgia) in four innings of work, allowing three runs and fanning seven.

The loss puts GC at 11-9 in Peach Belt Conference (PBC) play, positioned fifth in the league standings.

The Bobcats finish the three-game set with the Saints tomorrow, April 13 with a doubleheader beginning at 2 p.m.
