Georgia baseball: Bulldogs complete 2020 sweep of Georgia Tech

Georgia baseball completed the series sweep of Georgia Tech this past weekend. The Bulldogs improved to 11-1 on the 2020 season.

While I was at game three of the Georgia baseball series versus Georgia Tech on Sunday I posted score updates to my personal Facebook page. Unless you follow progress on Twitter, the UGA sports website or audio link, it is next to impossible to get even a score before games end.

One of my Facebook followers asked, “Did Diamond Dawgs win?” before I could even get to the car and while I raced to provide an answer, another follower stepped in with this timely reply:

“Brooms came out today as the Dawgs win the third game of the three-game weekend series vs. Tech 9-3 in front of 10,299 at Coolray Field in Gwinnett. Just like football and basketball.”

We at Dawn of the Dawg aspire to be conversation starters. We encourage you to ask questions and share comments on this site, the Dawn of the Dawg Facebook page and on contributor’s personal social media pages.

You have to love the interaction. They answered with style and frugality of words that would make my writing hero Lewis Grizzard proud. Which frees me up to write about the thrilling week ahead for Georgia baseball.

The Bulldogs get to savor this sweep for less than 48 hours. On Tuesday, Mar. 3 they face the always tough Georgia Southern Eagles at 5 p.m. in Athens. On Wednesday, Mar. 4 they face the Eagles again at another unusual venue, SRP Park in North Augusta, S.C., home of the Augusta Green Jackets. The Wednesday game begins at 6:35 p.m.

It is difficult for most Georgia fans to dislike Georgia Southern, who love Erk Russell as much as we do. Yes, Erk was football, we know that. We are talking the University, not the specific sport.

With little rest Georgia returns to Athens for a three game weekend series vs UMass. Mar. 6-8. First pitch of Friday’s game is at 6 p.m.; Saturday’s game begins at 2 p.m.; and Sunday’s game starts at 1 p.m.

Though UGA may not have strong feelings one way or the other about the UMass Minutemen, they are, in fact, Yankees, and we have a decent lead time to think of other reasons to not like them.
