Baseball: Cats shut out the Eagles in game #1

Courtesy WCU Sports
Statesboro, GA - Sophomore Jordan Smith pitched a complete game shutout against the Georgia Southern Eagles in the frist game of the weekend series Friday night in Statesboro at Clements Stadium.

Smith gave up only 5 hits to the Eagles as the Catamounts belted out 13 hits, while scoring 4 runs and stranding 13 base runners.  Friday night's drama came about when the Eagles had two runs on the scoreboard in the sixth inning after a ball was originally ruled by the home plate umpire to be a home run. After a huddle by the umpires the call was overturned and changed to a foul ball. Scooter Williams, the batter, would eventually strikeout.

Game two of the game series is scheduled for 2:30 pm on Saturday afternoon.
