Georgia forces a Game 3 in the Athens Super Regional

It’s been a tale of two games in the Athens Super Regional. Saturday couldn’t have gone much worse for Georgia Baseball, falling 18-1 to NC State to open action in the Classic City. Fans – many of whom tuned in for the first time all year – jumped to conclusions about the Bulldogs from one game with the Wolfpack, but if they tuned in again on Sunday, they might be ready to change their opinion. A switch flipped, and Georgia won 11-2. It was the same two teams but two polar opposite results setting up what should be an exciting finale in Athens.

“For us, to bounce back was huge. Just coming out, staying focused and playing the game,” Georgia head coach Wes Johnson said to open his postgame press conference. “Obviously, scoring those two (Slate Alford and Tre Phelps) right at first got us off to a good start. Leighton (Finley) threw the ball extremely, extremely well. We really put our bullpen at ease a little bit. You never know what you’re going to have to do when you come to a game like this. Obviously, Tre’s home run was huge.”

“It’s what they did,” he continued. “It’s nothing special we did as coaches, we just got them ready to play and these guys went and did it.”
