Scoring in every inning but two, the West Georgia baseball team took down the Paine Lions 8-0 in today’s first game of the doubleheader. In the second game, the Wolves shut down the visitors with pitching and good defense for a 4-2 win.
Game 1: In game one, Cody Skinner went the distance pitching all seven innings and allowing only five hits. Skinner also struck out four batters on the day. Skinner kept his pitch count under 100 pitches while throwing his second complete game of the season. This win puts Skinner at 6-3 on the season.
The Wolves took advantage of the four errors made by the Lions in the first game putting up four runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to put the game out of reach for Paine. Paine’s two pitchers only gave up a combined two earned runs with all the rest being unearned because of errors committed by the defense.
