After a devastating loss to Clemson, GS baseball was back in action this weekend as they hosted bitter rival Appalachian State.

On Friday, the Eagle defense shined en route to a 3-1 victory. Tyler Owens pitched six innings and accumulated six strikeouts to push his record to 2-0.

Jarrett Brown brought in two of the Eagles’ three runs, while Matt Anderson brought in the third run.

After an average performance on Friday night, the Eagle offense came to life on Saturday. GS walked away with a series-clinching 10-2 victory.

Noah Ledford accumulated three hits, including a home run, for a three-RBI performance. JP Tighe also logged three RBIs of his own in a dominant performance.

The dominance came to a screeching halt on Sunday, when the Mountaineers took down the Eagles, 3-1.

Robbie Young brought in two RBIs for the Mountaineers, while Noah Hall extended his record to 4-0 on the mound.

For the Eagles, Jason Swan and Steven Curry both recorded two hits. However, Austin Thomspon logged the sole RBI of the game for the Eagles.

GS now sits at 12-10 (3-3 SBC) on the season.

The Eagles are back in action on Tuesday as they host College of Charleston in a midweek matchup. First pitch is set for 6:00 p.m. and the game will be televised on ESPN+.
