So Fresh, So Clean

The Georgia baseball team has been slumping. They have won just 7 of their last 19 games. They have lost 3 of their last 4 SEC series. They lost to arch-rival Georgia Tech on April 12th. Enter freshman Nathan Moreau. The left-hander came into the game with a 3-1 record, but 0 wins since March 22nd. That didn't matter as the southpaw pitched 5 innings, allowing just one earned run, struck a career-high 6 batters and after the Dawgs 12-6 win over the Jackets, Nathan Moreau talked to me.

Dave McMahon -- How bad did the team need this win?

Nathan Moreau -- We needed it bad. We need to build off this and hopefully get on a roll. I'm just glad I can do my part.

DM -- Does it feel extra special that it came against an arch-rival like Georgia Tech?

NM -- It feels pretty special. Anytime you beat a great team like Tech it's special.

DM -- You went to Parkview High School, just outside of Atlanta, how much did you know about this baseball rivalry before enrolling at Georgia?

NM -- I knew about it a little. One of my former high school teammates, Tim Gustafson is a junior pitcher at Georgia Tech... when he started going there I started to watch the two teams play a lot more.

DM -- You had a 10-0 lead after 2 innings, is it easier to pitch with a big lead, or are you too relaxed or do you liked being constantly pumped up in a close game?

NM -- It is never that easy. Even with the score 10-0, Georgia Tech has an offense that can come back at any time. I still had to focus on what I had to do at all time.

DM -- The team now faces Florida, is every conference game a must win situation now?

NM -- I think we must win at least 2 of the 3 down in Florida. Hopefully this win will spark our team and we can continue to play well.

DM -- Thank you for your time.
