Georgia Baseball: Bulldogs Beat Auburn 5-2

So far, so good for the University of Georgia baseball team. The Bulldogs took the first game of a three-game set against SEC rival Auburn on Friday, starting off the series with a 5-2 victory.

Alex Wood dominated on the mound for Georgia, pitching eight strong innings. Wood struck out 10 while giving up just two runs on four hits and three walks. Wood improved to 6-1 on the year with the win. Pete Nagal pitched a scoreless ninth inning, striking out two without giving up a hit or a walk to notch his first save of the season.

Georgia took the lead in the third inning on a Curt Powell single. Auburn tied the game up in the sixth, but, fueled by four walks and a hit batsman, Georgia scored four times in the sixth to take a 5-1 lead. Auburn scored again in the eighth, but could not muster up enough offense against Wood and the Bulldogs.

The series between Georgia and Auburn continues on Saturday afternoon, as Michael Palazzone gets the nod for the Bulldogs.
