    Hancock pitched a great game. Just not their night.

    It's so disheartening for our ace to put up numbers comparable to ANYONE in America, but for 3 weeks can NOT get any run support. I understand in conference weekend series, our stud will face their stud. But to leave 10 men on base when the leadoff man reached to begin the inning 5 times; those are the games we scratch and claw to get Hancock off the hook after the vols scored 2. Maxwell was 0-4, Meadows hitless, King 1-5, Shep and Shunk had good games. But we may host a regional and I PRAY even a super regional.

    But for 1 Cam has struggled at the plate this year. So much so, it may be best for him to come back for his senior yr to improve his draft stock.

    Besides that, we are switching the lineup around alot. When a lefty starts sure i get starting a rh hitter. But Maxwell is a good bunter, makes contact, is having his best yr ever offensively etc. I'd start him leading off. N I know Shep is still below .220, but he WILL get hot at some point. Walks more than anybody n the SEC. And stud players USUALLY come thru in the clutch no matter how their seasons going. Shunk is our best hitter. Cleanup I'd use Tally. 5th Sullivan. Meadows 6th (in case they start a lefty, we have Meadows separating Sullivan and Cable.) 7th Rogers. 8th Jernigan. 9th someone that can bunt, and run.

    Game day. Got ranked #21 Missouri coming into town. Lets hope we can gain some momentum after that crazy game Tuesday. We need to get some runs to help support Emerson. We don't need many with how good he has been.

  • DirtDawgDirtDawg Posts: 532 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I missed today's game, but The Dawgs beat Missouri 3-0 and Hancock got the win! Team should be looser at the plate when he pitches again now that they have finally given him enough run support to get a win.

  • DGD28DGD28 Posts: 200 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    @DirtDawg Overall we played great. Hancock is just unfair, he pitched 8 complete innings with 11 k's and 0 walks. We didn't have a hit until the 6th when the flood gates opened up after tucker maxwell started the inning off with a perfect drag bunt. Great team win.

  • DirtDawgDirtDawg Posts: 532 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    @dgd28 Were you there ? I would love to see Hancock pitch at UGA. Haven't yet. Only listened. If you watch MLB, you'll see him for years to come.

  • DGD28DGD28 Posts: 200 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    @DirtDawg I wasn't there but you can watch pretty much every game on watchespn.

    He had his best start ever at UGA. 11k's, 8 innings pitched, 3 hits and no walks. He's absolutely as dominant as anyone in college. Our hitting especially situational is sketchy. But we are SO deep with 4 legit starters and the best college bullpen as far as depth I've probably ever seen. Kristofak, Shunk, Pasqua, Glover, Moody etc. N we're getting Ryan Webb back very soon. Stricklin said he was cutting loose a few 90mph SLIDERS in a simulated game! That is FILTHY coming from the left side!

  • MacDawg15MacDawg15 Posts: 3,057 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    The way we're kind of struggling to scratch out runs, I was SO happy seeing that perfect drag. I'd like to see a little more hit and runs, because we're just not built to put 8 or 9 up twice a wknd against tough SEC pitching. But it by no means we can't win the whole d@mn thing. If memory serves me right, the last year UCLA won it all they won I think 3-1, and 2-0 in the championship. Same with Uf when Singer n the other stud arms they had won it all, their offense was nothing special.

    And anyway if we're lucky enough to keep things rolling, we'll be hosting a regional; and if we DO get to Omaha, that park was built for pitching and defense if any park ever was. We have to put the ball in play more though and make the defense make plays. We're striking out WAY too much.

    Dawgs turn a triple play in top of 1st inning then score 3 with no outs to lead off bottom of 1st.

  • DogsNotDawgsDogsNotDawgs Posts: 1,701 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Here you can see the triple play. Happened in the first but the view is top of the 4th.

    most awesome and just a bit weird.

  • MacDawg15MacDawg15 Posts: 3,057 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I can honestly say I've never seen a 20 inning game AND a triple play ever in such a short span on any level of baseball lol.

    Wilcox was born with a lightning bolt for an arm. He's hit 99mph twice tonight. So far he's went 3 innings, 5 k's, 1 hit, n 1 walk. We really have to get a w tonight bcuz the guy we're facing tomorrow is NASTY.

  • TxDawg412TxDawg412 Posts: 195 ✭✭✭ Junior

    This is a special team. Go Dawgs!!😀😀

  • greshamdiscogreshamdisco Posts: 2,674 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    First triple play for the Dawgs since Kennedy was President. ⚾️⚫️🔴

  • DogsNotDawgsDogsNotDawgs Posts: 1,701 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    FINAL| Clean Sweep

  • MacDawg15MacDawg15 Posts: 3,057 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Any time we can get a sweep against ANY SEC team its huge. But this wknd sweeping the 21st ranked team in the country is huge for momentum! With us playing the best team we'll see during the season next wknd against Miss St, these are huge wins. We SHOULD jump a spot or two in the rankings after this wknd.
