Georgia Rotation This Week: The Bulldogs plan to get several pitchers some work Tuesday against Mercer. Sophomore LHP Jason Leaver (0-1, 4.11 ERA) will get the start. The SEC rotation for the UT series will be the same as last week: Sophomore LHP Nathan Moreau (2-0, 2.77 ERA), sophomore RHP Trevor Holder (0-1, 3.22 ERA) and freshman LHP Justin Earls (2-1, 1.61 ERA).
Previewing the Volunteers: Tennessee (13-9, 1-2 SEC) avoided an SEC sweep at Alabama with a 7-6 win in 10 innings Sunday. They were on a six-game winning streak heading to Tuscaloosa but fell to the Crimson Tide 9-7 and 9-1. UT is batting .275 as a team with a 4.78 ERA. They face Wright State Tuesday before the Bulldogs come to town. UT's probable SEC rotation will be senior RHP Craig Cobb (4-2, 4.96 ERA), junior LHP James Adkins (2-3, 3.13 ERA) and freshman lHP Nick Hernandez (2-2, 7.17 ERA). In records dating back to 1950, UT leads the series with UGA 97-77 including taking two of three in Athens last year. Georgia last won a series over UT in 2002 (2-1 in Athens), and the last time it won a series in Knoxville came in 2001 with a sweep en route to an SEC title. This year's series times will be 7 p.m. Friday, 6 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday.
