Lady 'Canes bats silent at West Georgia

By Chris Whitaker, The Americus Times-Recorder

The Lady Hurricanes combined for four hits in a doubleheader as West Georgia took the two games by 8-0 and 5-1 scores. GSW didn't have a hit in Game 1 and committed seven errors over the two games.

The Lady Wolves (3-1) pounded out eight hits in the first game, led by Aubrey Biddle, who was 3-for-3 with two RBI. After a scoreless three innings, West Georgia cracked the scoreboard with five runs.

They finished the game with a run in the fifth and two in the sixth.

GSW (2-4) had one baserunner - Heather Chambers - who drew a walk.

Three pitchers were used in the game with Jessica Martin (1-1) taking the loss, going 3.2 innings and allowing five runs - none earned - on three hits.

The Lady Hurricanes didn't fare much better in Game 2.

Chambers' solo home run in the second, her second of the season, was GSW's only run.

Tiffany Milstid (0-1) went five innings, allowing five runs - two earned - on six hits in the loss.

Kaley Sullivan drove in two runs for West Georgia on a single in the first inning, and Lindsy Kragt's two-run homer in the fourth finished the scoring.

GSW will return to action Saturday for its first conference games when Francis Marion pays a visit.
