LIVINGSTON, Ala. -- Columbus State started a three-game series with West Alabama with a win on Saturday, but it was West Alabama that would win the next two games.

West Alabama was steady on offense with one run scored in each of the first four innings.

The Cougars finally got on the board in the top of the fourth when a sacrifice fly for an RBI by Carson Bowers brought in Blaine Miller.

Dustin Averett hit an RBI single in the top of the fifth, but Columbus State was unable to complete a comeback.

Caleb Kutsche picked up the loss for CSU. He threw for three and a third innings and gave up four runs on seven hits with three strikeouts and one walk.

Columbus State (1-2) will travel to play Tuskegee at Paterson Field in Montgomery Wednesday starting at 3 p.m.
