|Saturday, 09 February 2008|
|DAHLONEGA, GA – The 20th-ranked North Georgia College & State University Saints dropped the second game of the three game series 3-2 to Pfeiffer University Saturday afternoon in non-conference baseball action. |
Pfeiffer (5-1) continued to shut down the Saints offense the middle game of the weekend series, allowing just one earned run on the day.
Pfeiffer University jumped on top in the third inning with a sacrifice fly off the bat of Hayes Hinson to make it a 1-0 Falcons lead. They would add another run in the inning on three hits and strand a pair to take a 2-0 advantage.
North Georgia came right back in fourth and used speed on the bases to force a Falcon error and bring Logan Sharrett home for the Saints first run of the game.
North Georgia followed in the fifth and tied the game 2-2 on a groundout by Andrew Jones to bring Rob Flanigan racing home.
The game would not be tied for long however, as the Falcons took the lead once again in the next half inning on a Zach Strickland single to give Pfeiffer the 3-2 advantage.
The Saints threatened in the ninth with two on and only one out, but a Daniel Petitti line drive was caught and turned into a double play to end the game.
Pfeiffer will return to action tomorrow afternoon at 1:00 p.m. for the series finale against North Georgia.
