Colonels Falls in Series Finale at Millsaps

JACKSON, Miss. (CentreColonels.com) - The Centre baseball team dropped a 12-2 decision to host Millsaps in a Southern Athletic Association (SAA) matchup on Saturday afternoon at Twenty Field.

The Colonels move to 13-8 overall and 4-5 in conference play, while the Majors improve to 11-14 and 2-6, respectively. 

Millsaps jumped out to a 9-0 lead after three frames due in large part to a seven-run second inning. 

Centre got on the board in the sixth inning when sophomore right fielder Drew Schacht (Lexington, Ky.) and Will Kirk (Morgantown, N.C.) each scored on a throwing error by the Majors' pitcher. 

Millsaps would tack on two more runs late in the contest to earn the SAA win after the Colonels swept the Majors in a conference doubleheader yesterday. 

Schacht went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored while Kirk finished 2-for-3 with a run to lead the Centre offense. 

The Colonels return to action on Wednesday, March 29 hosting Maryville (Tenn.) in a non-conference matchup at 5pm ET at Gary Wright Field.
