RiverDogs shut out Waves, 7-0
Special to The Post and Courier

COLUMBUS, GA.--Scott Autrey and two relievers combined for a five-hit shutout to give the Charleston RiverDogs a 7-0 win over the South Georgia Waves on Saturday.

The RiverDogs (4-3) have won four of their last five games, all against South Georgia (4-5). Vince Harrison went 4-for-5 with a homer and four RBIs to pace the RiverDogs.

Autrey (1-0) allowed four singles over the first six innings, Jason Bartz followed with two hitless innings and Carlos Hines struck out three in the ninth. Between them, they struck out eight Waves and walked none. RiverDogs starting pitchers have walked just five batters in 34 innings this year, including none over the last 15 innings.

Jason Pridie led off the game with a single and scored on Harrison's first hit, a one-out single against South Georgia starter Leigh Neuage (0-1). Elliot Johnson's RBI single in the second and a sacrifice fly by Adam Bonner in the third made it 3-0.

In the fifth, Harrison hit his second home run in as many games, a two-run shot to left off Luis Gonzalez, and drove in his fourth run with a single in the ninth that improved his batting average to .321.

The four-game series concludes today at 2 p.m. Charleston will send lefthander Jeff Ridgway (0-0, 0.00 ERA) to the mound against Mike Rodriquez (1-0, 3.00).
