AUGUSTA, Ga. - In a classic pitcher's duel on Saturday, the West Georgia Wolves baseball team fell 2-1 to the Augusta Jaguars at Lake Olmstead Stadium, dropping their first game of the young season on Saturday afternoon in Augusta.
West Georgia managed just two hits on offense all day long, and scored just one run, while surrendering two. Turner Edwards got the start for the Wolves, and took the loss, falling to 1-1 on the young season. Tristan Jones was on the bump for Augusta, and picked up a complete game, two-hit win for the Jaguars who won their first game of the season.
Augusta got a run on the board in their half of the third after Clint Hardy got a one out triple and then scored on a sacrifice fly by Davis Murray to put the Jags on the board.
The Wolves got their lone run of the day in the top half of the third, as Nasser Williamson got a leadoff single, before taking second on a wild pitch. Williamson then got to third on a ground out before scoring on a sacrifice fly by Artemis Kadkhodaian.
The bottom of the fourth was a rough inning for UWG's starter Turner Edwards as three hits in the frame would score what turned out to be the game-winning run.
UWG managed just one hit in the final four innings, and went three up and three down in three of those innings. Dalton Reagin would pitch three and a third innings of no-hit baseball, striking out three and allowing just one walk.
West Georgia and Augusta wrap up the quick two-game weekend series tomorrow in Augusta with a 1 p.m. first pitch at Lake Olmstead Stadium.
