Eagles relish in their third win of the season

Georgia Southern baseball takes down North Florida in midweek matchup

DJ Cadden, Correspondent

After a disappointing series loss to East Carolina, Georgia Southern’s baseball team was back in action on Wednesday as they traveled to Jacksonville to take on North Florida.

The Eagles struck immediately when a sacrifice fly by Austin Thompson brought in Jaylen Paden; however, the offensive strikes would be scarce throughout the remainder of the game.

GS’ next run would not come until the fourth inning, when a Steven Curry groundout brought Jason Swan home to push the lead to two runs.

In the seventh inning, an Austin Bogart single was enough to bring home Trey Spratling-Williams.

After scraping out a run, the Ospreys loaded the bases up with two outs. Luckily for the Eagles, a Robbie Scott groundout prevented any further damage.

Paden forced an error in the eighth inning to push the Eagle lead back to two runs. GS loaded the bases after Paden scorched, but failed to add to their lead.

Noah Ledford and Paden both racked up two hits en route to the 3-1 victory over the Ospreys.

The Eagles are back in action this weekend as they host Towson in a three game series. First pitch is set for 6:30 p.m. on Friday, 2 p.m. on Saturday and 1 p.m. on Sunday.
