HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - A six-game skid came to an end on Sunday, as the UWG baseball team used 11 runs to take down Alabama Huntsville 11-4 on the road to cap off this weekend's Gulf South Conference series.

West Georgia used 16 hits to pick up the win as the Wolves move to 6-8 overall this season, and win their first GSC game of the season. UAH moves to 7-7 on the season and 3-3 in league play as the Charger's five game winning streak came to an end.

Seven of the nine players in UWG's starting lineup got hits on the day with six of those picking up multi-hit games in the win. Price Peters had the big blast of the game as his eighth inning grand slam gave UWG plenty of room to breathe in the final inning.

Freshman Ryan Parker got the nod on the bump for the Wolves and pitched well, but gave way to Turner Edwards after after giving up three runs on seven hits in four innings. Edwards also threw four innings, giving up just three hits and one run.

Drew Eady got things started right off the bat for the Wolves with a leadoff double and then later coming into score on a Ben Utley single.

That lead would hold up until the third when the Chargers tagged Parker for three runs on four hits.

West Georgia had their own three-run inning in the sixth as Christopher Michals got on with a one out single, and then scored after Ryan Raper forced a UAH error on his sacrifice bunt attempt. Logan Arnett then singled up the middle to score Raper and then scored himself when freshman Dalton Gilliam ripped a pinch hit, RBI double to left field.

UAH catcher AJ Walden tied things up with a solo shot off of Turner Edwards in the bottom of the seventh, but the Wolves would respond in a massive way in the next half inning.

Ryan Raper led off with a double, and then moved to third while Logan Arnett reached on a fielder's choice. NJ Williamson then drove in Raper to score what turned out to be the game winning run with a single. After a strikeout and a walk by Drew Eady, catcher Price Peters gave the Wolves plenty of insurance runs with a grand slam to left field. UWG would add another run in the eighth on an error to take a 10-4 lead into the ninth.

Dalton Gilliam drove in the 11th run of the game with a sac fly to score Arnett after the freshman third baseman led off the ninth with a double and NJ Williamson moved him to third with his second hit of the game.

Andrew Marshall gave up a single in the ninth, but picked up two strikeouts to slam the door on the Chargers.

Price Peters and Ryan Raper finished the day with three hits each while Peters had the four RBI as he slugged his first career grand slam and second homer of the season. Gilliam finished 1-for-2 with a pair of RBI. Drew Eady, Ben Utley, Logan Arnett, and NJ Williamson each had two hits in the win. Utley, Arnett and Williamson each had an RBI.
