Georgia Vs. Alabama Baseball: Bulldogs End The Season With A 6-4 Loss To Crimson Tide

Georgia fell to Alabama 6-4 and lost for the second straight night to Alabama and lost the series two games to one. In the season finale, Georgia did get out to a 3-0 lead after three innings, but then the pitching for Georgia started to go down hill when Chase Hawkins replaced starting pitcher Luke Crumley with less than stellar results.

Hawkins only pitched 1/3 of an inning but he gave up three hits, walked a batter but most importantly gave up a pair of runs which tied the game at three.

In the seventh inning Georgia had a chance to blow open the game when they loaded the bases with one out and sent freshman pinch-hitter Nelson Ward to the plate, but he lined a shot back up the middle which resulted in a fielders choice. However, that play did score a run to make it 4-3 for Georgia.

With a one run lead and heading into the bottom of the eighth inning the relief pitching came up short again as Blake Dieterich gave up two runs and his replacement Pete Nagel gave up another run which gave Alabama a 6-4 lead.

In their last attempt to tie the game Alabama's Trey Pilkington shutdown the Georgia bats in the ninth inning to secure the win for Alabama.

The Georgia offense struggled as they went 2-for-17 with runners in scoring position and left left 14 on base.

Georgia Vs. Alabama Baseball: Bulldogs Shutout By Crimson Tide, 4-0

The Georgia Bulldogs fell to the Alabama Crimson Tide 4-0 and the two teams have now split the first two games of their three-game series. Alabama's Jon Keller earned the win by pitching seven innings, gave up only five hits and struck out six batters. Freshman Jake Hubbard came into pitch the final two innings and completed the shut out and struck out two batters.

The Georgia offense never got anything going with their bats and only had five hits on the night, and those five hits came from three different batters.

Alabama scored their four runs in the third and fourth innings off of Michael Palazzone. Over all, Palazzone pitched fairly well by going eight innings by striking out six and allowing four runs, but we gave up 10 hits and walked one.

Center fielder Taylor Dugas and left fielder Hunter Gregory led led the way offensively for Alabama. Dugas had a big game for Alabama by going 2-for-4 with a run, two RBI, a stolen base and a triple while Gregory went 2-for-3, two RBI and a run.

The final game of the series is Saturday at 2:05 p.m.

UGA Vs. Alabama Baseball, Game 1: 5-Run 2nd Lifts Bulldogs To Series-Opening Win

Looking to improve their seeing for the SEC Tournament, the Georgia baseball team moved one step forward with an 8-4 win at Alabama on Thursday.

The Bulldogs entered the day as the No. 6 seed in the conference, while Alabama was in last place in the conference. Georgia used a big second inning to jump out in front and held on for the win. The Bulldogs scored five runs in the second, while Alabama answered with one in the bottom frame. There was no more scoring until the bottom of the eighth, when the Crimson Tide added on another run. But Georgia scored three in the ninth to pull away.

Curt Powell went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in the leadoff spot for the Dawgs. Kyle Farmer went 3-for-6 with three RBIs and a run scored. Alex Wood gave up one earned run on six hits over seven innings in the start.

2012 College Baseball, Georgia Looks To Improve Tournament Seed

The Georgia Bulldogs start a three game series with the Alabama Crimson Tide Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. This is the final weekend of regular season play for SEC teams before they begin their conference tournament May 23. And with multiple teams clustered in the mid seeds, this weekend should provide some wild seeding scenarios.

The Bulldogs are currently occupying the sixth seed with a 13-13 conference record. Arkansas, Mississippi St, and Vanderbilt are nipping at their heels with 13-14 conference records. The Bulldogs have one less conference game due a cancelled contest against South Carolina earlier this season. That one game could prove advantageous because it is the reason the Bulldogs are currently ahead of Arkansas, Mississippi St, and Vanderbilt in the standings.

This weekend in the SEC features exclusively conference games, and a solid weekend could see the Bulldogs improve their tournament seed. Fortunately for the Bulldogs, Alabama is currently dead last in the SEC with a 7-20 conference record. A three-game sweep is not out of the question. That would give the Bulldogs a 16-13 record, which could potentially slot them in the third seed (with some help of course).

The chances of a three seed is unlikely though, as Florida would need to lose all three games to Auburn (currently in third to last place in the SEC). But if the Bulldogs win all three, and Ole Miss drops at least one, the Bulldogs will secure a solid four seed for the conference tournament.
