Georgia State has added a game Sunday. The Panthers will face Bowling Green at 12:30 p.m. as scheduled, then face Army at approximately 3:30 p.m.
What You Need to Know:
* Freshman Hunter Gaddis and sophomore Liam Henry combined for a four-hit shutout in 3-0 win over Army.
* Gaddis struck out seven, Henry two.
* Ryan Blanton and Romero Greer delivered run-scoring singles.
Gaddis, the 6-5 right-hander, pitched seven scoreless innings, allowing four hits and one walk while tying his career-high with seven strikeouts.
The rookie from Sequoyah High School in Canton improved to 3-0 on the season and has thrown 11 straight scoreless innings since moving into the starting rotation.
"Hunter Gaddis was certainly the story of the day, and he's kind of been the story of the entire pitching staff this season," head coach Greg Frady said. "He is just doing a tremendous job. We debated long and hard about moving him to the rotation because he was doing such a good job in the bullpen, but if he can pitch seven innings, he eliminates that middle role."
Henry, another righty, finished the game with two scoreless, hitless innings for his first save. He struck out two to give the Panthers nine on the day. For Henry, it was his second strong outing of the week after throwing 2.2 scoreless, hitless innings in Wednesday's 2-0 win at No. 14 Ole Miss.
"Liam has done a good job twice this week, and I want to congratulate him on his first career save," Frady said. "We also played good defense behind those guys, and Brandon Gonzalez gave us a great game behind the plate.
Georgia State (8-6) scored all its runs in the fifth inning. In a scoreless game, Jack Thompson led off with a single and moved to second on a sacrifice. Luke Leonard walked and Justin Jones singled to load the bases, and then Ryan Blanton and Romero Greer delivered back-to-back run-scoring singles to put the Panthers on the board. The third run scored on a balk.
"Today we were able to have an inning where we cashed in, and that turned out to be enough," Frady said. "The conditions are tough to hit in. It's cold and windy, the turf is wet, the ball's not carrying, so it's hard to score."
Army (3-9) starter Tyler Giovinco (0-3) pitch 4.1 innings to take the loss.
The Panthers' weekend at LakePoint concludes with two games Sunday as the Panthers face Bowling Green at 12:30 p.m. and then Army at approximately 3:30 p.m.
