NEWBERRY, S.C. - After two weeks and eight games away from home, the Newberry Wolves returned to the Smith Road Complex looking to earn a season sweep of nationally-ranked Georgia College, but the visiting Bobcats came away with a 10-1 win Tuesday evening.

Newberry falls to 20-23 overall entering Wednesday's game against No. 12 Francis Marion. First pitch at Smith Road is set for 6 p.m.

The Bobcats jumped out to a 1-0 lead on Newberry starter Evan Brown (Columbia, S.C.; 2-2) on an unearned run in the first inning and pushed the lead to 3-0 on a two-run homer to left field in the third inning by Shawn Ward. GC's Matthew Robinson hit a two-run single in the fourth to make it 5-0.

Georgia College extended the lead to 8-0 in the sixth, propelled by Ward's inside-the-park homerun off of the centerfield wall. Patrick Daugherty smoked an RBI double down the right field line in the seventh to make it 9-0 before the Wolves crossed the plate.

Derek Bley (Upper Arlington, Ohio) led off the bottom of the seventh with a single and walks drawn by Robby Scaggs (North Augusta, S.C.) and Zach Morgan (Simpsonville, S.C.) loaded the bases. John Fogarile (New York, N.Y.) drew a bases-loaded walk to score Newberry's run. With two outs and the bases still loaded, the GC pitcher sailed a pitch to the backstop and Scaggs scampered towards home, but the catcher got a favorable bounce off of the wall and tagged the runner out at the plate to end the Newberry rally.

The Bobcats scored again in the eighth and Newberry managed just one more hit - a Bley single to lead off the bottom of the ninth - before falling.

Bley went 2-for-4 for Newberry, who only collected three hits in the game. GC's Daugherty and Ward each notched three hits.
