Head coach David Perno has guided the Bulldogs to back-to-back SEC sweeps of No. 9 South Carolina and No. 9 Kentucky the past two weekends. The 12-3 SEC mark matches the best-ever start for a Georgia team, joining the 1990 national championship squad and the 1953 and 1954 teams. The '90 team finished second in the SEC with an 18-9 record. The 1953 team won the SEC with a 12-4 mark and the 1954 team won the Eastern Division (12-4). In 2006, Georgia went 12-3 in the second half of the SEC season and finished second in the league at 18-9. The best 15-game SEC stretch by the Bulldogs came by the 2004 SEC Championship team as they went 13-2 in the second half of the year.
For the sixth consecutive week, Georgia will play five games in a week, and this Tuesday it begins with East Tennessee State (9-26) coming to Foley Field at 5 p.m. On Wednesday, Georgia plays host to Ga. State (18-15) at 6 p.m. Georgia will employ several pitchers in the midweek games with junior right-hander Stephen Brock (0-1, 10.50 ERA) starting Tuesday and freshman right-hander Justin Grimm (0-1, 7.31 ERA) on Wednesday.
