When Georgia entered the NCAA Tournament, they knew they were going to face some great pitching. If you look at the 4 starters they have faced so far, they entered the Bulldog game with a combined record of 40-12. Not an easy task. Well the Bulldogs have made it look easy.
Eight players on the Georgia roster have at least 5 hits. The designated hitter position is the only exception, but if you combine the 2 starters, then it would be nine players.
Joey Side has done everything for the Dawgs. The junior centerfielder leads the Dawgs with 7 hits. He also has 2 home runs and a team-best 10 rbi. He also made one of the best diving catches of the season.
Leadoff hitter Jonathan Wyatt is not far behind. Six hits and 7 runs scored. One of the runs scored he got from a home run that cleared the scoreboard in right-center.
Josh Morris is back to his old self. Three monsterous home runs. The three gives him 23 on the season which ties a school record for the most hit in one season. He has also added to career record which is at 51 right now.
Jason Jacobs also has 5 hits and 5 rbi. He has also walked 5 times and reached base on a hit by pitch.
Gordon Beckham, Bobby Felmy, Ryan Peisel and Matthew Dunn also has 5 hits in the tournament.
The 2 designated hitters have done their part as well. Matt Olson hit his first career home run and Kyle Keen layed down on the best bunts of his career.
The Bulldogs will need to continue this surge if they want to beat FSU on Monday night at Foley Field. Gametime is 7:00 pm et.
