Extra Good

Although Josh Morris hit his record-tying 45th career home run on his 21st birthday, he was not the hero. Senior Bobby Felmy hit a one out double in the 11th inning as Georgia defeated their in-state rival Georgia Tech 5-4. The Bulldogs have now won a season-high 8 straight games. Georgia led 4-2 in the 9th inning before Steven Blackwood tied the game with a 2-run homer. The Dawgs will now travel to Auburn in a crucial SEC matchup, but before that Felmy talked about the Georgia Tech game.

Dave McMahon -- Take me back to that at-bat in the 11th inning...

Bobby Felmy -- I knew I hit the ball real hard. I am glad that it reached the gap and when it did I knew it because the place erupted.

DM -- When was the last time you had a hit this big?

BF -- 2004 Regional vs Clemson. It was big because we came back in the 9th when I got a home run and then Jason Jacobs, later on Clint Sammons hit the winning home run, but just the way we did it, it was great.

DM -- You have been hitting the ball better lately... a lot more line drives... are you doing anything different?

BF -- Not really. I am waiting more until I get the pitch I want, but overall I am taking the same approach.

DM -- You are from Pennsylvania, but you really get into the Georgia / Georgia Tech rivalry don't you?

BF -- I love this rivalry. This crowd was great... I mean one side is for us and one for them. Both teams always come out to play and play hard.

DM -- How great is it to play vs Georgia Tech at Turner Field?

BF -- It is an awesome feeling playing here. We got to hit batting practice where the Braves hit before the game. Jeff Francoeur and Ryan Langerhans left some of their bats and batting gloves in the cage, so a couple of us hit with their bats. It was pretty cool.

DM -- Good win and Good luck vs Auburn this weekend.
