USC Aiken 3-8 West Georgia 2-2


CARROLLTON, Ga. — The USC Aiken traveled to West Georgia and knocked off the home team with one school-record performance and a dominant hitting effort in game two. The Pacers won by scores of 3-2 and 8-2.


USCA improves to 17-4 on the season.


In the first game of the day, head coach Jerry Snyder’s team put two runs on the board in the top of the first and another in the second en route to the 3-2 win. It was more than enough as India Kornegay gave up just four hits. Kornegay struck out a school-record 19 batters in the victory. She also surpassed the 900-strikeout mark in her career (903).


In the second game, USCA plated two runs in the first inning thanks in part to an error. White singled and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt. With two down, Victoria Burkett walked. A dropped fly ball allowed White and Burkett to score.


The home team tied it in the second, but Taylor Morgan stayed strong, not allowing a run the rest of the way.


USCA took control of the game in the sixth stanza with three runs.


The Pacers return to action Tuesday when they travel to Wingate for a non-conference doubleheader starting at 2 p.m.
