Darton State's Davis Adkins went the distance.
But all he had to show for it was a 4-3 loss.
Adkins went 9.2 innings for the Cavs, but a 10th inning, two out single off him brought home the winning run for Middle Georgia.
Darton rallied to tie the game at 3 with two outs in the 9th off a Kyle Conkle single to right.
Cody Wofford led off the 9th with a strikeout, but the ball scooted past the catcher.
Wofford hustled down the line to reach base.
After Riliani Familia fisted a single to left, Conkle delivered the clutch hit to score Wofford from second.
In the bottom of the 10th though, Middle Georgia's Cole Thompson singled to left to score Cody Lanford to win the game.
The loss pushed Darton to the loser's bracket, where the Cavs blew out number one seeded Georgia Perimeter 9-1 in seven innings.
Brandon Goldsmith pitched a complete game, only allowing the one run while striking out three.
The Cavaliers play an elimination game Friday against Gordon College at 3:30 p.m. at Cavalier Field.
