TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (February 28, 2018) – Abraham Baldwin (Ga.) Agricultural College won game two of a doubleheader, 7-3, on Wednesday evening to snap Tallahassee Community College's nine-game winning streak.
The Eagles' win streak reached nine with an 8-4 win in game one.
In the opener, both teams' pitchers had trouble slowing down the opposing offenses in the early going.
ABAC starter Walker Bass pitched into the third but failed to retire either batter he faced in the inning.
Finally, it was Tallahassee's Alex Stobert (1-1) who settled in and found a rhythm. He scattered five hits and allowed just one run over four innings to earn the win.
Trailing 2-1, the Eagles plated three runs in the second to take the lead.
Tallahassee extended the lead an inning later.
Miller and Rayburn had two hits each to lead the Eagles' 11-hit attack.
In game two, the Stallions roughed up Lacey (3-1) for four runs in the top of the first. He allowed only one more run before leaving after four innings but did so with the Eagles trailing 5-2.
Lacey and three relievers combined for 14 strikeouts in just seven innings.
Miller had two more hits in game two, as did Tanner Thomas and Polewski.
Tallahassee will close its pre-Panhandle Conference schedule with a three-game series against Grand Rapids (Mich.) Community College. Game one is at 1 p.m. Sunday.
