Game two of the series saw the Dawgs score early and often. The offense continued its early season sucess, cranking out 12 runs on 21 hits. Colby May, the freshman 3B, hit his third homer in the 7th, and C Joey Lewis hit another one in the 8th (Both Solo). Mat Cerione hit a triple in the 5th that was just over the outstretched Arizona SS and rolled into the outfield. It had potential for an in-the-park-homer, but with a large lead he played it safe and got stranded at third. In fact, the only down side for Georgia was leaving 11 potential runs on base. Despite that, they hit double digit runs for the 6th time in 7 games (11.9 pts/game). The only game so far where they've failed to reach 10+, was a mid-week game where they still scored 8. Arizona, for much of the game, was shut down. Starter Alex McRee got the win, going 5 innings with 6Ks and just 3 hits. Just when it looked like Georgia might pick up its second shut-out, the Wildcats broke through. They picked up 3 runs in the 8th, and another 2 in the 9th helped along by a Chase Hawkins' balk.

Game 3 is set for 2pm Eastern, Sunday afternoon. RHP Justin Grimm will start for Georgia.

***Important to note*** With a 7-0 record, Georgia has matched its best start under coach David Perno. The other team to start 7-0 was the 2006 College World Series team.
