CARROLLTON, Ga. - A seven game skid ended on Wednesday as the West Georgia Wolves won in a big way with a 20-9 decision over the Young Harris Mountain Lions at Cole Field.

West Georgia scored the most runs since the 2014 season when the Wolves put up 23 runs in an 11 run victory on the road.

On Wednesday the Wolves got off to a roaring start, scoring the first 14 runs of the game. West Georgia added three runs in the second with the big knock being a two-RBI single by senior Drew Eady. Fellow senior Artemis Kadkhodaian drove in a pair with a double in the next inning, and finished the frame with three runs after an RBI single from Cade Marlowe.

Ben Utley singled home Lane Griffith in the fourth to put the Wolves up 7-0, before the offense exploded to new level in the fifth.

Kadkhodaian and Marlowe reached to begin the inning and scored on a two-RBI single by Lane Griffith. West Georgia got another pair as Jake Farrell ripped a pinch-hit double that scored two before Bradley Felkel put the Wolves up by 14 with a big blow, a three-run bomb to right field, the first long ball of Felkel's UWG career.

Young Harris responded with six runs on six hits in the fifth to cut the lead to eight. Christopher Michals who was subbed in mid-game drove in a run for West Georgia in the seventh.

In the bottom of the eighth, the Wolves got five runs on four hits and an error as Lane Griffith, Dalton Gilliam and Christopher Michals each drove in a single run, while Kadkhoadian ripped another two-RBI double.

The Mountain Lions responded with three in the final frame to make it an 11-run final.

West Georgia used six pitchers on the day as Dalton Reagin earned the win, throwing two shutout innings. Tyler Garner also threw a pair of shutout innings while Joe Vonderschmidt tossed 1.1 innings without allowing a run.

Felkel and Kadkhodaian were each 2-for-4 as Felkel drove in three runs and Kadkhodaian had four RBI. Griffith finished the day 2-for-3 with three RBI. Cade Marlowe also picked up a multi-hit game going 3-for-6.
