This series had me a little worried, as Georgia didn't do too well against Arizona to start off last season, and this year they had to go out west. They turned in an excellent preformance though, winning game three 10-5 to finish off the sweep with a combined score of 33-15. Arizona managed to get its runs early rather than late, but still couldn't make up the deficit. Freshman P Michael Palazzone picked up his first career win.

Now the Dawgs return to a cold, snow covered Athens (up to 4 inches). Power has been out for much of the city too (30 hours at my house). It should be gone and ready to go by their next game though, 6pm Wednesday evening against Wofford. A win here would tie the nearly 100 year old record of best start, 9-0 set in 1911.

With the depature of All-American Gordon Beckham, and first round draft pick Joshua Fields a lot of questions arose about the team and if they were good enough to make it back to Omaha. I fully expect some kind of post season appearance. If this team can keep up the excellent hitting and score 10+ runs every 7 of 8 games, they will be hard to stop. Going out west and sweeping in fairly dominating fashon gives me a lot of confidence in this team. Hopefully they will work hard to make up for last year's game 2/3 of the finals, and we can see them there again this year.
