Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post 12-6

Thursday April 27, 2006

The Diamond Dawgs needed a win in the worst way, and they got one against the best possible opponent on Wednesday. The Dawgs hung 10 runs in the first two innings on Georgia Tech and never looked back on the way to a 12-6 win. The offensive explosion was highlighted by a three-run home run by Josh Morris that landed somewhere near Ila, Ga. Things got interesting in the sixth, but Joey Side’s 794th amazing catch of the season ended the inning and a four-run Tech rally.

Though Tuesday’s loss to Western Carolina was a pretty rare bad loss for the team, a couple of wins over highly-ranked Clemson and Tech are huge when it comes time for NCAA Tournament selection. Now we have to go on the road against Florida, and it’s essential to make up some ground in the SEC standings.

I’m glad the rain held off for this game. Had it been rained out, it would have been the third time in four seasons that Tech hadn’t played a scheduled game in Athens.

May 10th – Turner Field. The deciding game in the season series. Proceeds go to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. There is no reason not to be there.
