No. 9 UNG takes opener against Young Harris

By AccessWDUN Staff

YOUNG HARRIS — Steven Bower tossed 8.2 innings of one-run baseball as the No. 9 University of North Georgia baseball team took the first game of the series against Young Harris Friday night by a score of 4-1.

Tristin Smith got the Mountain Lions on the board first, singling home a run in the bottom of the second, but UNG answered in the very next frame on a Chase Sudduth single to tie the game up at 1-1. Later in the inning, Nick Clarno hit a double with the bases loaded, plating two Nighthawks to push the score up to a 3-1 lead.

Sudduth gave UNG an insurance run in the fifth inning on a solo blast to straight away center to push the game to its final score. YHC loaded the bases up in the bottom of the ninth, but Parker Morrison slammed the door shut with a strikeout to end the game.

- Bower (6-2) gave up just the one run on nine hits while striking out eight Mountain Lions. He did not issue a walk.

- Sudduth was the lone Nighthawk with multiple hits, smacking three of UNG's five hits on the day. North Georgia drew eight walks in the game.

The two teams will meet up again tomorrow at Zell B. Miller Field with first pitch set for 3 p.m.
