AUGUSTA, Ga. - One week after the UWG baseball team had an extra-inning, walkoff win to sweep Augusta, the Jaguars would get some revenge on Sunday as they had a walkoff win in the ninth, to complete a two-game weekend sweep of West Georgia.
The Wolves lose their second straight game, falling to 4-2 on the young season.
West Georgia got on the board first in the game as Price Peters led off the second inning with a single before coming all the way around to score on a Christopher Michals triple, giving the Wolves an early advantage.
Michals helped UWG extend the lead to 2-0 in the fourth inning as he singled in Ryan Raper who had singled earlier in the frame and then advanced to second on an error.
Russell Klein got the start for West Georgia and pitched three shutout innings before running into trouble in the bottom of the fourth inning. After Jim Wagner reached on a catcher's interference, he scored four batters later on an RBI single. Ty Hobbs would drive another run in to tie things up at two.
Senior Ryan Sapp came on in relief and threw 3.2 innings giving up four hits and an earned run.
Each team got a run in the eighth, as UWG's came off the bat of Christopher Michaels again. Ryan Raper led off the inning with a double and then advanced to third on an error before Michals drove him in with a sac fly. The Jaguars got their eighth inning run on two hits, a double and a single to tie things up once again.
The Wolves had Nasser Williamson lead off the ninth by getting all the way to third on a two base throwing error by Augusta's pitcher, but three straight groundouts prevented Williamson from scoring the go ahead run in the ninth.
An error would put the game-winning run on for Augusta in the bottom of the ninth. After Tyler Roberts stole second, the Wolves would get a strikeout and then intentionally walk the next batter. With two on and one out, Wagner drew a walk for the Jags, and Davis Murray would be hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to win the game for Augusta.
Michals finished the day 3-for-3 and drove in all three runs for the Wolves. Nasser Williamson also had a multi-hit game, finishing the day 2-for-4.
West Georgia is at home this week in midweek action as UWG hosts Georgia Southwestern on Wednesday evening at 5 p.m. at Cole Field.
