CARROLLTON, Ga. - The 2019 baseball season continues on Saturday at Cole Field, as the West Georgia Wolves take on the Alabama Huntsville Chargers in Gulf South Conference baseball action. First pitch for Saturday's doubleheader is set for 2 p.m. 

QUICK HITS
• The weather has not been friendly to the diamond sports schedule through the first month-plus of the 2019 season. This weekend marks the first GSC series of the year that hasn’t been adjusted for weather conditions. 

• This marks the first series between the Wolves and the Chargers since the 2017 season. With the new conference schedule that began last year, the two teams did not meet during the 2018 campaign. This year, West Georgia will not play Christian Brothers or West Florida in Gulf South Conference play. 

• The schedule has been tough for the Wolves through February, as just six games were played against teams that were either nationally ranked or coming off of an NCAA Tournament trip in 2018.   

• Cade Marlowe continues to have a solid season in his final year at West Georgia. He comes into the game with a .363 batting average and is among the GSC top-10 in multiple offensive categories. He has stepped things up on the basepaths, stealing six of his GSC leading 14 stolen bases in the last week. 

• Senior first baseman Logan Taylor has been a run-producing machine since the last homestand, as he has driven in seven of his team-leading 16 RBI in the last two weeks. He is also now tied for the Gulf South Conference lead in doubles on the year, as he comes into the weekend with nine.  

• Senior reliever Drew Hayles came in for a crucial situation in the Wolves’ win over top-ranked Delta State, striking out the side against the Statesmen in the 8th to help earn the save in a 3-1 victory. 

• Junior catcher Lane Griffith has raised his batting average more than 70 points in the last two weeks, going 5-for-17 with five runs scored and a pair of RBI in that span.
