The 10th-ranked North Georgia College & State University baseball team completed a three-game sweep of Georgia Southwestern with a 4-2 win on Sunday in Americus.

Kenny Bellavance had a pair of RBI singles, while Troy Snitker had an RBI single and drove in the Saints' final run with a groundout in the seventh inning.

That was all the offense the Saints (15-6, 4-5 Peach Belt Conference) needed.

Andrew Wallace (2-0) earned the win, scattering seven hits in 5 2/3 innings of work. Jacob Rickett picked up the save, his sixth, with a perfect ninth inning.
