Rebs Rough Up Brown

Junior right-hander Brooks Brown has been lights out this season. Friday was a different story. Brooks allowed 6 runs, 5 earned in just under 8 innings of work. Although he recorded 9 strikeouts and 0 walks, he did hit 3 batters and threw a wild pitch. Brown fell to 3-2 on the season and 1-2 vs SEC competition.

Brooks Brown has been the hard luck pitcher for the Georgia Bulldogs this season. Last season in SEC play, Brown was 3-0, already this season the right-hander is 1-2. It's not all his fault though. Is his 3 conference starts, the Bulldogs have scored a total of 7 runs. Friday's loss was especially frustrating since the Rebels never had a big inning. Ole Miss scored just once in the 1st and 3rd innings and just twice in the 5th and the 8th, but it was enough as they defeated Georgia 6-4 and after the game Brooks Brown answered a few questions...

Dave McMahon -- Ole Miss hardly hit the ball hard all night, is it tougher to take since the majority of their hits were weak shots that just fell in?

Brooks Brown -- Yes, It is tough because I fought to get ahead of the batters and their hits found the holes. They barely went through, but they did.

DM -- Was there any one pitch that did not work tonight, or was it a little bit of everything?

BB -- My change-ups got hit... I didn't throw them that much, but I left them too high and they took advantage of it.

DM -- What else went wrong?

BB -- I couldn't put them away. I would get two strikes on them and they found a way to get on.

DM -- What do the Bulldogs need to do to win the series vs Ole Miss?

BB -- I think we got our bad hitting out of the way and we will do better the next two games... plus Mickey and Trevor should pitch well. I think we can win the series.

DM -- Good luck to you and the Bulldogs the rest of the series and the rest of the season. Georgia plays Ole Miss on Saturday at 4:00 pm and Sunday at 1:00 pm.
