Each day we strive to find article links involving Georgia Southern athletics and former Georgia Southern athletes. Should you find we missed an article link, please reply to help keep the Eagle Faithful informed:

1. Pilots stay unbeaten in the second half

[The Pilots bullpen struck out seven of the last eight batters it faced. Quinn Bright struck out the side in the eight, before Tony Chisman struck out the side in the ninth to earn his sixth save of the season.]


2. Clinton LumberKings Rally Falls Short in 6-5 Loss to the Kane County Cougars

[He was replaced by right-hander Blake Nation, who allowed only a run on Spina’s RBI fielder’s choice in the fourth.]


3. RoughRiders Win on Tracy's Extra-Inning RBI

[Val Majewski hit a ground-rule double and scored on a Flint Wipke line single in the sixth to give the Travelers their first lead, which lasted half an inning.]


4. Baseball Always a Waiting Game for Wright

[As quickly as Wright was sent from Eugene, he can return. And if it takes a few extra days, that's no big deal. Wright is used to waiting. "I can't find the holes," he said. "But that's baseball, man. I just want to get in there. The hits will come."]



5. Pitchers prove worth in bringing down Loons

[It's been a whirlwind summer for the catcher. After being drafted in the 16th round by the San Diego Padres out of Georgia Southern last month, Benedict spent a couple of weeks in Eugene (Ore.) at the short-season A level before being told to fly to Dayton to hook up with the Caps on Friday. Neither Benedict nor Dascenzo know how long Benedict will be with the Caps, but Benedict plans to make the most of wherever he's told to play. “I'm here today and I'm enjoying every chance I get to be with these guys and be a part of this program (Fort Wayne has the best record in minor-league baseball) and play on this field,” Benedict said. “I'm happy to be (in Fort Wayne), I'm lucky to be here and hopefully I can be here a while.”]


6. Home-school teams face battle in scheduling foes

[William Banks, Jonathan Gibbs and Evan Wells were named to the organization's varsity football Southeast Super-Regional team. Banks, who was a senior quarterback and tailback, will attend Georgia Southern University in the fall as a preferred walk-on.]
