Baseball - Sat, Feb. 4, 2017

Middle Georgia State University put the stamp on the series Saturday morning. The No. 17 Knights (5-2) scored five runs in the first three innings and cruised to an 8-2 win. Georgetown College baseball scored first in the twin bill, but MGSU responded right back and pushed a run across in the bottom of the seventh for a walk-off 5-4 win. The Tigers fall to 1-3 on the season.

Brannon Green got it going for the home team in the final inning. He singled, then advanced on a misplayed grounder. He took third on a single and scored on a bases-loaded walk to give MGSU the victory.

Sean Williams went 1-of-2 with a pair of RBIs in the second game. He walked to push across the Tigers first run and then hit a sacrifice fly for the second. Kyle Jackson went 2-for-3 from the plate for a third of the visitors' hits. He also scored once.

Michael Koltak scattered eight hits in six innings with three strikeouts and gave up four earned runs. Steven Whistler tried to help GC reach extra innings, but gave up two hits and a walk to end the game.

Eight Tigers tallied a hit in the first game Saturday. Alex Corna went 1-for-1 to lead the way, also scoring one of the two runs. Kendall King, Rodnee Little and Brandon Benson all went 1-for-2. Sam Medina, Ryan Viramontes, John Shattles and Andrew Paz all went 1-for-3. Jackson scored the other GC run.

The Tigers are back in action noon Friday at Stillman College in Tuscaloosa, Ala. They will play another pair of doubleheaders in the weekend series.
