The UTA Baseball team hosted their first Sunbelt conference game when they took on the Georgia Southern Eagles for a three game series this past weekend. In Friday’s game, the Mavericks won 3-2. The game got on a promising start when Senior outfielder Quentin Rohrbaugh hit a solo home run in the first. Starting pitcher Kadon Simmons went 7 2/3 innings only allowing two hits. Saturday’s contest saw UTA lose their matchup against the Eagles 4-3. Noah Vaughn tied the game 3-3 with his fifth homer of the season, but Eagles second baseman Steven Curry hit the game winning RBI. In Sunday’s rubber match was a seesaw affair as the Eagles score five runs in the first. UTA starting pitcher Jakob Hernandez settled down after the first inning and had six scoreless innings with seven strikeouts. The Mavericks tied the game 5-5 in the fifth inning, but Georgia Southern would add four runs in the eighth to seal their win and the series win against the Mavericks.
