Georgia (5-5) grabbed a 2-0 advantage in the top of the first when junior shortstop Gordon Beckham smashed a two-run shot to left field off FSU right-hander Mike McGree. With one out, sophomore Michael Demperio reached with a base hit, and then Beckham followed with his team-leading seventh home run. The Seminoles (12-0) tied the game in their half of the first on a two-run double by right fielder Jack Rye off Bulldog sophomore Dean Weaver.
Georgia went right back to work in the second, scoring four runs on one hits to build a 6-2 advantage. The inning began with Bryce Massanari reaching on an error by shortstop Tony Delmonico. After a one-out walk to Matt Cerione, a base hit by Ryan Peisel put Georgia back in front 3-2. After a walk to Demperio loaded the bases, Beckham was hit by a pitch for his third RBI on the night. Poythress earned an RBI on a bases-loaded walk and a sacrifice fly by Joey Lewis made it 6-2.
Georgia added single runs in the third and fourth frames to chase McGee. Cerione's run-scoring double and a sacrifice fly by Massanari extended the Bulldogs lead to 8-2. McGee surrendered eight runs (five earned) on six hits in 3.1 innings. He walked four and struck out one before giving way to Tyler Everett.
Meanwhile, Weaver tossed the first two innings and allowed a pair of runs on four hits with two walks and a strikeout. Sophomore Alex McRee pitched a scoreless inning and started to warm up in the fourth when play was halted.
