Jags Beat Benedict 9-1 For First Win of 2018

February 14, 2018

AUGUSTA, Ga. – The Augusta University baseball team beat the Benedict Tigers 9-1 in a non-conference single game at Lake Olmstead Stadium.

Senior Ty Hobbs hit his third home run in four games to card three RBI.

"I thought there was a business-like approach today," head coach Chris Howell said. "I thought we worked hard all week. We've battled some adversity earlier in the year and the guys came out today with a little more focus to complete nine innings. We attacked the zone pitching and we saw some adjustments throughout the game offensively and we pieced it together.

Benedict played 22 of its 23 players on the roster, but couldn't slow down Augusta who outhit the Tigers 7-5.

AU used six pitchers in the game, to give some midweek work to the bullpen. The Jags went to rookie Jay Pendley(1-1) on the mound for his first collegiate start and he sat down six of his 11 batters faced on strikeouts and only gave up two hits in his 3.0 innings pitched.

Junior Chase Slone pitched two innings and struck out a pair, before senior Tony Jones, junior Aron Chick, and senior Cody Pugh pitched. Goble closed out the last inning on the mound for Augusta.

The Augusta offense put up five in the first inning on three hits and Hobbs blasted a two-run homer to score Goble after he doubled off the right-field wall.
