Dawgs take series... Vandy next

The Georgia baseball shutout the SEC East Champion Kentucky Wildcats 4-0 on Saturday to clinch 3rd place in the Southeastern Conference. The Bulldogs will face Vanderbilt on Wednesday in Hoover, Alabama. The shutout was Georgia's 7th as a team this year, which tied a school record. The Dawgs finished 38-17 in the regular season and won 14 out of their last 15 games. On Saturday Jonathan Wyatt tied his career-high with 4 hits and after the game he talked to me.

Dave McMahon -- With the win... Georgia is now the 3rd seed in the SEC Tournament... are you ok with that?

Jonathan Wyatt -- We're fine with the number three seed. We wanted to win all 3 games this weekend, but we didn't, but were ok being number 3 and we'll do our best out there.

DM -- After a loss on Friday, this was a great win.

JW -- Yes it was. Yesterday their pitcher pitched real good. Today we scored early and we rebounded well and won.

DM -- You scored 1 in the first and 2 in the 3rd... how important was it for you to score early on a team like Kentucky's?

JW -- It was extremely important to score before they do. We have to score early so our pitcher can settle in and today he did.

DM -- You had 4 hits today, you seemed more focussed today.

JW -- Yeah... yesterday was not a good day for me. I made sure that in the first inning today that I was ready to play.

DM -- How much do you want to play in Athens during the NCAA Regionals?

JW -- That is what we were all thinking about today, that if we won we would have a good chance to host a regional. We want to be here. We always have great turnouts. We have a great atmosphere here. We love our fans and our fans love us.

DM -- Thank you and good luck the rest of the way.
