MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga.—After battling the weather to get on the field, the 23rd-ranked Barry Buccaneers dropped their first game in the Georgia College Round Robin Tournament 2-0 to the host Bobcats at the Peeler Complex on Friday.

The Bobcats (16-5) scored both of their runs in the second inning. Whitney Horton homered to right center to lead off the inning and Danielle Bernstein, who reached on a bunt single and stole second, scored on a passed ball.

Carly Lewis (6-2) tossed her second shutout of the season, holding the Bucs (14-5) to six hits and a walk. Britney Pugh (4-1) suffered her first loss of the season. She worked 4.1 innings, allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits and three walks.

The Bucs will play the Bobcats again at noon on Saturday, followed by a game against Newberry at 2 pm.
