Uga got his revenge on Lipscomb yesterday.  Georgia Tech and Georgia have a rubber match tonight at 7 pm

Georgia needed two big wins on Sunday to keep their College World Series hopes alive, and they got them in convincing fashion.  First up was an afternoon revenge game against Lipscomb.  As you may have heard, the Dawgs took quite a “dump” against the Bison in their opener, losing 10-7 despite home field advantage.  This time, however, the “dump” was on Lipscomb as the Dawgs piled up 21 hits on their way to a 14-3 victory/reenactment of the hunting scene from Dances With Wolves.

Next up was, of course, the all too convenient rivaly matchup with the Yellow Jackets.  Given the way the Dawgs had played of late (Read: the Regionals, SEC Tournament, and last 1/3 or so of the season in general) my hopes weren’t particularly high for this one, but I was obviously happy to seem them prove me wrong.  You know, a win would have been fine, I would have been more than happy to admit I’d sold my Dawgs short at that point, but Georgia pitcher Nick Montgomery decided he needed to rub it in.  Montgomery gave up just 4 hits to Tech on his way to a complete game shutout, the first time Georgia had blanked the Jackets in nearly 40 years.  I’ll take it.

Hopefully the Dawgs will decide to rub it in a little more tonight around 7:00 pm (don’t worry Dawgs, I can handle it), when they’ll need to hand Tech its 2nd Regional loss in order to advance to the Super Regionals against a hot N.C. State club.  Unfortunately, I won’t be able to help pull them through on the tele, so I guess I’ll just have to keep passively watching College Softball (Read: staring at/searching for hot Softball players).  It’s not all bad out there, you know…
