JACKSON, Tenn. – It was a rough start to this weekend's series at Union on Friday as the UWG baseball team was shutout 10-0 in a seven inning run-rule game at Fesmire Field.
The Wolves had just four hits on the day and were bitten hard by the error as UWG committed three errors in the fifth inning that aided the Bulldogs to a five-run frame.
Tyler Garner got the start for the Wolves and gave up an early two-run homer in the first, but then pitched three solid shutout innings before running into trouble in the fifth. Union struck for five in the inning on four hits and three errors.
Union got the two in the first, five in the fifth and a single run in the sixth before Zach Phillips hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning to make it a 10-0 final in seven innings.
Drew Eady had two of the Wolves four hits while Artemis Kadkhodaian and Dalton Gilliam each had singles.
The Wolves fall to 16-29 overall while the Bulldogs improve to 31-16 on the season.
The two squads come back for a Saturday doubleheader in Jackson, Tenn. tomorrow at 2 p.m. EST.
