Key Quotes

“It goes to show the importance of not taking at bats or pitches off,” said Charlie Condon. “No matter who you are playing in the SEC, they are going to give you a full fight for nine innings. It shows the discipline of this team. Even if you get up 10 runs in the sixth inning it is far from over. There is plenty of ball to be played.”

 

“The biggest thing is helping my guys out and trying to be as efficient as possible,” said Jarvis Evans. “Nobody wants to sit around and watch walk after walk, so if I can get us off the field and get our athletes up to the plate like All-American Charlie Condon, you have a chance to win the ball game. I am competing the best I can every single pitch.”

 

“I don’t care what the score is or how ugly it was, wins in this league are hard,” said Georgia’s Ike Cousins head baseball coach Wes Johnson. “It doesn’t matter what their record is or who they are, you have to be ready every inning of every game in the SEC.”
