SGC Falls to Gordon
Bray Bishop surrendered just two runs on two hits in four
innings and Stuart Drew went 2-4 with a run and an RBI in the SGC Tigers’
7-4 loss to Gordon College in Barnesville on Tuesday.
The game, one of just two non-conference games remaining on the schedule,
gave the Tigers a break before a big weekend series with Georgia Perimeter
in Covington. The normally potent SGC offense had trouble scoring runs
against a trio of Gordon pitchers. The Tigers recorded five hits but left a
total of six runners on base, compared to just two stranded by Gordon. SGC
scored one in the fourth, two in the fifth and one in the eighth. The Tigers
led 3-2 after five innings but lost the advantage when Gordon plated five
runs in the last two innings.
Zack Hula (3-2, 5.79), the fourth SGC hurler used by head coach Scott Sims,
gave up three earned runs on three hits in an inning of work to take the
loss. Drew was the only Tiger with more than one hit. DJ Hines doubled in
his only plate appearance.
SGC faces Georgia Perimeter in an important three-game series on the road
this weekend in Covington. After this weekend, the Tigers have four games
remaining, all at home, in the 2010 season. Wednesday, April 21, Darton
College comes to town for a 5 p.m. contest at Crider Field. This is a
non-conference game. On Thursday, SGC plays Middle Georgia, the conference’s
top-ranked team. First pitch is scheduled for 6 p.m. Saturday, April 24,
Middle Georgia returns to Douglas for a double-header beginning at 2 p.m.
SGC is 31-18 on the season and 9-6 in conference play.
