LAWRENCEVILLE, GA -- Georgia Gwinnett scored six runs in the first two innings in an 8-5 victory over No. 10-ranked Cumberland Tuesday afternoon.

Sam Lind and Josciel Veras each collected three hits for the Bulldogs (5-3) and Veras drove in a pair of runs, but a shaky first two innings from CU pitching opened the door for Georgia Gwinnett and they took advantage, plating six runs on six hits and the aid of one Cumberland error as well as five walks.

Chris Hall added two hits and Richie Seaton scored twice, but the shaky start was too much to overcome.

Phillip Bates posted three hits and scored twice and Robbie Payne also recorded three hits, part of a 14-hit attack for the Grizzlies (8-3). Antonio Allen and Ty Abbott each registered two hits and Sloan Strickland scored twice for GGC as well.

Kevin T. Greene (0-1) took the loss for the Bulldogs, allowing five runs on five hits with three walks in 1.1 innings of work. Jake Collier tossed 3.2 innings of relief, giving up an unearned run on four hits.

Brandon MacKinnon (1-0), the second of six GGC hurlers, picked up the victory, tossing 3.2 scoreless frames and allowing four hits with two walks and four strikeouts.

Cumberland scored twice against Ryan Turner in the seventh inning and once each versus Jonathan Spitler and Zeke McGranahan in the eighth and ninth, respectively, but the tying run never made it to the plate.

Cumberland hosts West Virginia Tech in a three-game series this weekend beginning Friday at 2 p.m. at Ernest L. Stockton-Woody Hunt Stadium.
