Your Super Diamond Dogs

I don't know why I only get interested in baseball when the college world series/playoffs come around, but I do. Actually, I do know why but that's irrelevant. And, yes, it stinks that they use metal bats.

If you missed last night's game, where UGA defeated FSU, you missed a heck of a game. The game was a good defensive battle, but for the baseball faithful out there, you have to be concerned with the Dogs stranding 11, one inning left scoreless with bases loaded. However, you have to be glad that pitching closer Fields finally got some pitching action to knock some of that bench rust off. He got the save, but it wasn't pretty. This loss for FSU marked their first time not making a Super Regional since the current system was instated.

So next Coach Perno and his squad will host South Carolina here at Foley Field this weekend. The Dogs should have their way the Gamecocks, being they beat them all four times they met this season, but hey, that's why they play the games.

Check with the Georgia Dogs web site for start times. General admissions will be $24. Television coverage hasn't been published, though AM960 will have the play-by-play.

And by the way, Dave Johnson does a heck of with play-by-play for their games, so if you're watching, you may want to turn down the sound on the TV and turn on the radio.
