Georgia Tech Dominates Georgia: What's Wrong With UGA?

UGA spent a lot of time looking to the bullpen in a 25-6 loss

Georgia Tech defeated Georgia 25-6 on Wednesday night in Athens dropping the Bulldogs to 11-22 on the season.

Dave Perno returned 19 letterman from a team that played in the NCAA Tournament going 38-22. UGA has gone to 3 College World Series and 2 SEC Championships this decade, but 2010 is shaping up to be by far their worst under the Georgia alum.

UGA walked 14 batters and allowed 25 hits using 10 pitchers to finally put the Yellow Jackets out.

The College Baseball Blog listed Georgia as "by far the biggest disappointment in the SEC" this year. But with the parity in the conference they still have a chance to play in the conference tournament (only top 8 play).

Meanwhile, Georgia Tech rolls on to an important series this weekend with Clemson coming to town. The Yellow Jackets are fighting with Miami and Virginia for the Coastal Division lead.

They have a chance to sweep their in state rivals with the final game being played at Turner Field on April 27. Good news for Georgia as they lead 6-1 in games at the Ted.

  1. Georgia Tech lost in basketball and football to the Dawgs, so this was nice to see for me being a Georgia Tech fan.

    I watched the last few innings, it looked like batting practice for the Jackets. Will Danny Hall finally get Georgia Tech to play to its potential the entire season rather than slip torwards the end as has been the case several times in recent years?

  2. You are right. Georgia Tech has been the national champs of the first half of the season many times.

    The College Baseball Blog doesn't think they have the pitching depth this year to make a run, but I think this is the best depth they have had in years.

    Maybe this is the year? Got to prove it in the NCAA Tournament where the Jackets have fallen short too many times for the amount of talent they have had come through.
