'Canes end season with a 10-0 win

Sophomore Ryan Lackey threw a complete-game shutout in the Hurricanes final game of the 2009 season; a 10-0 win over Albany State.

In the first inning, a Bud Long ground out to short brought in Chris Lingham, who reached base with a leadoff double, to give the ‘Canes an early 1-0 advantage.

The score remained 1-0 until the bottom of the sixth, when five Albany State errors opened the door for a seven-run frame for the Hurricanes. Daniel Lynn brought in two runs on his triple to left field and Shane Doyle drove in another two runs with a double down the left field line.

The Hurricanes would close out the game in the seventh inning when Trey Reeves' double down the left field line brought Scooter Houston and Byron Haynes to make the score 10-0.

Albany State starting pitcher B.J. Stewart (4-2) went 5.1 innings and allowed six runs - one earned - on five hits to take the loss. He struck out two and walked three.  Ken Nesbitt pitched one inning of relief and walked two while allowing four runs - two earned - on three hits.

Lackey (3-5) scattered six hits, did not walk a batter and struck out five. 

Brandon Marcus went 3-for-3 at the plate for Albany State (29-17) with a stolen base.

Haynes led GSW with a 2-for-3 performance. He scored two runs and knocked in a run. Trey Reeves and Daniel Lynn had two RBI apiece for the ‘Canes.

Georgia Southwestern finishes the 2009 season with a 19-33 record.
