Release from Georgia State Athletics:

Bryce Conley tossed six scoreless innings in Georgia State’s 13-0 (7) win over Coppin State on Sunday, completing a four-game sweep that included three straight shutouts.

Conley (1-0), the junior right-hander, allowed three hits and struck out seven while issuing just one walk to earn his first victory for Georgia State. Wayne Wages pitched a scoreless seventh in the seven-inning game, giving the Panther staff 24 straight scoreless innings.

Jaylen Woullard, Rhett Harper and Sam Few drove in two runs each for the Panthers (5-2), who scored two runs in the second, six in the third and five in the fifth.

In the four-game series, GSU pounded out 55 hits and scored 64 runs. The pitching staff allowed just four runs, all coming in the eighth inning of Game 1, and struck out 41 with just four walks. They were supported by excellent defense as the Panthers committed only one error in the four games.

Senior catcher Joey Roach had two homers, two doubles and seven RBI in the series, while third baseman Jarrett Hood led the tam with eight RBI on the weekend. Woullard also drove in seven.

“Today was more of a culmination of the entire weekend, and I really liked how we played,” head coach Greg Frady said. “Our offense was on point, our defense was on point and our pitching was on point, so definitely a good weekend.

“I think the team did a good job of not worrying about the game score or the other team and just doing the job. Everybody stayed committed to what we’re trying to do as a team.”
