Baseball brings back bats against jaguars

by Stuart Price

Georgia Regents University traveled to Billy Grant Field yesterday in an effort to increase the Blazers’ baseball losing streak to five.

With timely hitting, solid defense and strong pitching, the Blazers were able to take out the Jaguars 6-2 and get back on track.

The Blazers started out a little rough by committing an error and allowing one run in the first inning.

The Blazers were able to respond in the second inning after a leadoff double from Hayden Jones and a Zac Goodno single to tally the Blazers’ first run.

After a scoreless top-half of the third inning, it looked like the Blazers were going to follow suit until Michael Gouge was able to reach on an infield error.

Next up for VSU was Bryant Hayman, who was able to drive in Gouge and give the Blazers a 2-1 advantage.

In the top of the fourth, the Jaguars were able to get two men on base before head coach Todd Guilliams decided to bring in lefty Jared Stanley to close out the inning.

After allowing one more man to reach and load the bases, Stanley struck out the next batter to keep the Blazers ahead. The Blazers continued to dominate and went into the sixth inning with a 4-1 lead over the Jaguars.

After an infield single and a double, Georgia Regents was able to tack on another run and cut the lead to 4-2.

VSU shortstop Mike Reed and first baseman Gouge were able to give the Blazers some insurance with a solo homerun and a score on a wild pitch in the bottom of the seventh.

The Jaguars were unable to score any more runs and the Blazers cruised to an easy 6-2 victory.

With yesterday’s win, the Blazers improve to a 14-10 record for the season. The Blazers will resume action on March 21, when they head to Memphis, Tennessee and play a 3-game series against Christian Brothers University for another conference game.

VSU will return to Billy Grant Field on March 28, to take on Union University.
