Middle Georgia State baseball finding success yet again in 2014

The Middle Georgia State baseball team has won 12 of its last 14 games.
COCHRAN, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) - Middle Georgia College has a pretty impressive history when it comes to baseball.
   
Last season, the school merged with Macon State to become Middle Georgia State, and the newly named Knights won 39 games.  However, they had to forfeit several of those wins after it was ruled they played an academically ineligible player.
   
This season, they're off to another hot start.  With more than a dozen regular season games left, plus playoffs, the Knights have already won 28.

Thursday in Cochran, they knocked off Gordon State, 4-0, to bring their winning streak to seven games, their longest streak this season.

Paul Knight is in his first year coaching the Knights.  Thursday, we asked him how his first squad has kept up the success.

"Coming on board in August, I didn't have a whole lot to do with bringing the players here," Knight says.  "I just walked into a situation where the team was assembled.  Coach Howell--my assistant coaches did a great job assembling the team, so we've got a lot of talented players. You ask what the trick is.  The trick is to have good players, and they're doing a good job.  We just let them rock and roll."

The Knights have scored more than 10 runs in seven games this year, and they've scored more than 20 twice.
   
They'll close out a 4-game series against Gordon State on Saturday.

They have a doubleheader scheduled in Cochran.  First pitch is set for 1 o'clock.
