Szucs tosses complete game, Chargers' offense productive in series sweep
Georgia Highlands baseball completed a four-game series sweep of Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College with a doubleheader win Sunday at LakePoint in Emerson. The Chargers won Sunday’s opener 10-1 and then took Game 2, 8-1. GHC won the series opener last Wednesday at ABAC and edged the Stallions Saturday, 6-5. In the first game Sunday, starting pitcher Stevie Szucs tossed a complete game and scattered six hits and a walk while fanning six ABAC hitters. The Lassiter High School product allowed a lone run to the Stallions on a Matt Cuthress RBI single in the fourth inning. Meanwhile the Chargers’ bats provided plenty of offense.
Bryson Horne (3 RBI), Lavoisier Fisher (2 RBI), Skylar McPhee (2 RBI), and Blake Brady all contributed two hits apiece. Georgia Highlands led throughout Sunday’s second game as well.
The Chargers went up 3-0 in the second inning on a Brady home run and never trailed. GHC pitchers Jacob Meyer (4 IP, 1ER, 7H, 1BB, 2K), Anthony Reneo (1 IP, 0R, 1BB, 2K), Ryan Smithson (1 IP, 0R, 2H, 1BB, 1K), and Brady Barker (1 IP, 0R, 0H) kept the Stallions off the scoreboard other than a single, third inning run.
McPhee homered with two hits and three RBIs. Horne had two hits including a double and six other Chargers finished with one hit each. ABAC falls to 7-15 overall and 1-4 in Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association play. Georgia Highlands (16-8, 4-1) starts a four-game conference series with West Georgia Tech Tuesday night at LakePoint. The remaining three games of the series will be in Carrollton Friday and Saturday.
