The University of West Georgia baseball coach summoned senior right-hander Randall Wright — primarily utilized as a reliever — to the hill for the battle with the Bobcats and the former Central High School ace wouldn’t disappoint in the 8-1 West Georgia win.
Wright worked 4.2 innings, giving up one run on three hits, including tossing a perfect first three frames, before allowing a fourth-inning single.
Wright got a no-decision after being pulled with two outs in the bottom of the fifth, allowing Jonathon Black to pick up the victory for his 2.1 innings of shutout ball.
The Wolves (10-4) got two runs in the third, fourth, fifth and eighth innings, with designated hitter T.J. Eifert leading the way with a 2-for-3 showing at the plate, scoring a run and driving home a pair.
West Georgia now turns its attention to Gulf South Conference action, which begins with a three-game series against Christian Brothers this weekend at Cole Field. UWG hosts the Bucs in a 2 p.m. double-dip on Saturday, followed by a 1 p.m. single game Sunday.
