Georgia Bulldogs Sunday Summary: Baseball Survives, Women's Tennis Advances

After a disheartening Saturday, Bulldog Nation closed out the weekend on a high note. Though fewer teams were in competition today, those Red and Black squads who found themselves in action emerged victorious, as we see in this, the Sunday summary:

Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Georgia Bulldogs 0 4 0 0 1 2 0 0 0 7 14 0
Kentucky Wildcats 0 0 2 0 0 4 0 0 0 6 13 1

Finally, finally, finally, the Diamond Dogs got their act together, snapping a three-game losing streak when Georgia beat Kentucky to avoid a baseball series sweep in the Bluegrass State. Starter Blake Dieterich fanned four and walked one in five frames’ worth of work, conceding two earned runs on eight hits.

Though the Red and Black bullpen allowed the Bat Cats to get back into it with a four-run sixth stanza, the Classic City Canines never trailed, coming out on the better end of one-unit margins in runs (7-6), hits (14-13), and errors (0-1). Second baseman Levi Hyams led the way from the leadoff spot, drawing a pair of walks and going three for three, including two home runs and four RIWWB.

With the win, the Athenians evened their overall record at 26-26 and clinched a trip to Hoover with a 15-12 conference record and three games remaining on the SEC schedule.

Women’s Tennis

Following in the footsteps of their male counterparts, the Georgia women’s tennis team clinched a spot in the NCAA Tournament round of 16 with a 4-0 win on Sunday. Against nationally-ranked Alabama, the Bulldogs took the doubles point and swept the singles matches in sequence.

Chelsey Gullickson gave the home team a 2-0 advantage with a 6-0, 7-5 victory, then Maho Kowase carded a 6-3, 6-2 win. The clinching point came from Nadja Gilchrist, who outlasted her opponent, 7-5, 6-0. The Georgia ladies will join the Athenian male netters on the campus of Stanford University for the third round of the tourney, where the Bulldog women’s tennis team will square off with a Pac-10 foe on May 20.
