Georgia Baseball moves to 12-0 and perhaps #1 ranking

The Dawgs handled Quinnipiac this weekend, winning 7-0, 19-6, and 7-2, to move their record for the 2009 season to 12-0. Friday night's game was highlighted by Trevor Holder's 7 innings of hitless ball. Saturday's game saw the bats come alive and put a hurting on the visiting team. The blowout victory including this bowb from Rich Poythress:

Sunday saw the Dawgs finish off the sweep with a workman like victory. Already ranked #2 in the Collegiate American poll coming into the weekend, the Dawgs appear to be poised to take over #1 this week as LSU lost its weekend series. The Dawgs have two more throw away games this week against LeMoyne before the real season begins this weekend against Alabama.

The 2008 Georgia team was simply amazing, with All-American Gordon Beckham leading the way to a national runner-up, but the 2009 team may be that much better. This is by far the most complete Georgia team I have seen. The pitching is fantastic and the hitting is solid throug out. The best part is, the team is filled with freshman who will be with the team for a few more years. I would be very surprised if the Dawgs are not back in Ohama come the end of this season.
