He allowed just one run in eight strong innings while scattering five hits with six punch outs to earn his first win as an Argonaut. In the nightcap the Argos held on for a 6-4 win, fending off a three-run seventh inning rally from Tech.In their first GSC road series of the season the Argos took advantage of a struggling West Georgia team and capitalized with a three game sweep. It was not an easy road to victory for the Argos as they erased five-run deficits in both games of Saturday’s doubleheader to pull out one-run victories. Dustin Lawley was the hero in game one, blasting a go-ahead two-run homerun in the top of the ninth to give the Argos a 6-5 victory. In game two it was Jack Materne who blasted his first homerun of the season, a two-run homer, in the top of the sixth to put the Argos on top 7-6. On Sunday afternoon it was Materne who once again used the long ball to spark the Argos offense and break a 1-1 tie in the top of the ninth. Seven runs would cross the board in the inning to give them eventual 8-2 win and a series sweep over the Wolves.This week is a short week for the Argos, playing four games in five days.

It seems like MLB is making a concerted effort to push that trophy design in their marketing, just like other 3 sports push theirs:- NBA with the giant trophy on the court and patch on the jersey- NFL using the Lombardi Trophy in the recurring SB logos- NHL using the Cup on all their patches….hell, naming their entire playoffs after the trophy.
