OFFICIAL BASEBALL THREAD: CLEMSON at No.10 Georgia

CUTrevor 2022-04-19 11:18:20


The Tigers will go for the season sweep of UGA at 6:00 today after beating the Bulldogs a couple weeks ago for the first time since 2017. They won their first ACC series of the season at No.23 Wake over the weekend and would have swept if not for losing in extra innings on Saturday. Blake Wright was the hero for the Tigers in their 4-3 win over UGA on April 5. He was 2-4 with a double and his 6th and last HR of the season. Barlow pitched 5 innings and allowed just one run and 3 hits.

Chris Hamby will be in Athens, and we'll provide live coverage for you right here!

Freshman David Lewis is starting tonight at DH with ice cold Brewer on the bench. Lewis hit his first career HR at Wake on Sunday.

Blackwell strikes out looking to start the game. Georgia will use at least 5 or 6 pitchers tonight. Sometimes they use 8 or 9 in these midweek games.

Ingle flies out. He is on a 6-game hit streak and has hit safely in all but 3 games this season.

Wright singles with 2 outs. He has at least one hit in 12 of the last 13 games and is now batting .333 on the season.

That was an error by the right fielder. Lost it in the sun

CUTrevor 2022-04-19 17:18:48


Well it was scored a double. Home team scoring! Ingle is in right, by the way, because Grice is in center with Brewer on the bench. The Tigers are not as good defensively with Brewer on the bench, but he hasn't hit safely in about a month!

No homerun for Georgia so their jackpot grows to 550.00. Jokingly told them if a homerun wasn't hit and they wanted to desperately give away the money i would split it with the young lady beside me

There are TV cameras because it's being streamed on SEC Plus, but it's not televised. You're right, though, it's surprising it's not on SEC Network. The first game was on ACC Network.

GRICE 3-RUN HR!!! His 3rd HR in the last 2 games puts the Tigers up 4-0! Lol I've been saying for weeks that if Grice started hitting like we expected, the Tigers would start winning. He hadn't hit a HR for 5 weeks and suddenly hit 2 at Wake on Sunday and now one tonight! His batting average was down to about .220, over 100 points lower than last season.

Good grief Barlow gives up a base-clearing triple to make it 4-3. Lindley comes in from the pen with no outs and the tying run on 3rd. Monte should have yanked Barlow after loading the bases. Putting the leadoff man on for the 4th time finally cost him!
