ATLANTA – The Georgia State baseball team hosted another successful Scout Day as the Pinstripe team defeated the Grey team 5-1 in six innings of action.

“I thought the day was very successful,” said head coach Greg Frady. “Over two-thirds of pro baseball organizations were represented and I think the guys were very excited today and the play on the field really showed that.”

The intrasquad scrimmage that was the highlight of scout day consisted of six innings with a new pitcher for each team checking in each inning.

The Grey team took an early 1-0 lead in the top of the first on a RBI single by Joey Roach that plated Chad Prain.

The Pinstripes battled back with five runs in the bottom of the third inning. Shane Gordon singled through the left side to plate a run and Josh Merrigan brought home two runs with a double.

The Panthers posted some solid pitching as well. Connor Stanley set down three straight batters in the top of the fourth while Nathan Bates returned the favor in the bottom of the fourth.

Freshman Matt Rose had a big day offensively as he went two-for-three with a double for the Pinstripes. Roach and Prain each went 1-for-3 for the Grey team.

The 2013 baseball season will begin in February. For more information on Panther baseball visit
