COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Columbus State’s big 9-3 win over the #3 University of North Georgia Nighthawks Friday provided plenty of confidence for the Cougars heading into the rest of the weekend series.

North Georgia battled back with a 5-3 win Saturday and took the series Sunday with a 3-0 victory over the Cougars.

UNG scored first run of the game as Trevor Sams doubled to left center to bring home Michael Gouge in the first inning.

Andres Perez followed that up with a sacrifice fly in the second inning to bring home Conner Corbitt.

They added another run in the 7th to take a 3-0 lead.

CSU had a lot of trouble with Dylan Peppers, who pitched a complete game shutout for the Nighthawks. Peppers gave up only three hits and had 17 strikeouts in the win.

The Cougars are now 24-16. They hit the road for a two-game series with West Florida in Pensacola on Tuesday.
