EXHIBITION BASEBALL: Georgia Tops Ontario Nationals 18-1

Georgia posted an 18-1 win over the Ontario Nationals in a fall exhibition game Tuesday in front of more than 300 fans at Foley Field.

The Bulldogs scored in every inning including a six-run outburst in the fourth along with a four-run fifth frame.  Graduate Cole Tate had three hits including a home run and four RBI while sophomore Fernando Gonzalez added a three-run blast to ignite the offense.

Georgia employed seven pitchers, including four freshmen, on the night who scattered a run on three hits with 15 strikeouts. Redshirt sophomore Davis Rokose started and struck out four over two innings, allowing one unearned run on one hit with two walks. Junior transfer Dylan Ross pitched two perfect frames with three strikeouts.





The Bulldogs will play their next exhibition game on Oct. 10 against Western Carolina. First pitch at Foley Field will be at 4 p.m. Admission is free.

Comments From Georgia’s Ike Cousins Head Baseball Coach Scott Stricklin

“On the mound, I was pleased with the way we competed. We threw seven guys, six newcomers and sophomore Hank Bearden. All the pitchers threw strikes and did a nice job.





“Defensively, we played well with just one error. We were able to play a lot of guys and got to play another opponent. We had a nice crowd and a good night under the lights. I think you can see we have a lot of depth on this year’s team.”
