Georgia continues a stretch of 15 games in 20 days with a neutral site contest against Georgia Southern Tuesday followed by a home game against Stetson Wednesday.

 

The Bulldogs (10-1) will be the visiting team against the Eagles (4-7) at SRP Park in North Augusta, S.C.  Georgia clinched a series over Georgia Tech this past weekend while the Eagles dropped a home series to No. 21 Campbell. On Wednesday, the Bulldogs are back at Foley Field to play host to the Hatters (8-4). This will mark their first road game. Earlier this season, Stetson upset No. 4 Florida in a midweek contest.


First pitch Tuesday will be at 6:35 p.m. and feature radio only on the Georgia Bulldog Sports Network. Wednesday’s contest against Stetson will start at 6:30 p.m. and be streamed on SECN+ and available on the Georgia Bulldog Sports Network.

 

Series History: Georgia leads the series with the Eagles 62-54-1. Last year, Georgia won two out of three, posting a 17-11 decision at SRP Park and a 9-4 victory in Statesboro. The Eagles won 12-2 in Athens. Meanwhile, the Bulldogs own an 8-6 edge over the Hatters. Stetson swept Georgia in a three-game set in 2011 in DeLand after the Bulldogs swept Stetson in Athens in 2010.

 

Pitching Matchups:  Sophomore LHP Jarvis Evans (1-0, 1.80 ERA) is slated to start Tuesday versus Ga. Southern. It will mark the fifth career start for the 6-4, 216-pound native of Buford. In the early going, the Bulldogs took a staff approach, however Evans went five innings last Tuesday against Presbyterian, allowing two runs on two hits with six strikeouts. He did not factor in the decision. The Eagles will counter with senior RHP Cameron Oliu (0-0, 6.00 ERA). Wednesday’s probable starters have not been announced. On deck, Georgia has a four-game series with Northern Colorado starting Friday in Athens.

 

Offensive Firepower: Georgia boasts an NCAA-leading 30 home runs and .672 slugging percentage plus is seventh in on base percentage at .466. Nine Bulldogs have hit home runs with All-America 3B/1B/OF Charlie Condon leading the way with eight. On Monday, Condon was named the Dick Howser Trophy National Player of the Month for February, it was announced by the NCBWA. Currently, Condon is batting .568-8-15. He ranks third in batting average and second in slugging percentage (1.273).

*Georgia has won big (three run-rule games) while its only loss was a run-rule game. The Bulldogs have rallied twice in the ninth for comeback victories with four total Walk-Offs counting run-rule games. This past Sunday at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville, Georgia trailed Ga. Tech 9-3 going to the 7th and 9-8 in the 9th. They rallied for an 11-9 series-clinching win in front of a crowd of 8,163.
