GC Baseball Washed Out at Francis Marion

FLORENCE, S.C. – The series-deciding matchup between Georgia College baseball (15-10, 7-4 PBC) and Francis Marion University (18-10, 8-6 PBC) has been cancelled due to inclement weather.

The two squads started the game on time at 1 p.m., and were in the bottom of the fourth when lightning struck. When the ensuing thunderstorm came through, the umpires cancelled the game. The contest will not be made-up.

The Bobcats are back in action Saturday, March 24 at 2 p.m. eastern, traveling to the University of Montevallo.
