The Diamond Dogs hosted Savannah State at Foley Field on Tuesday evening. On a night on which David Perno sent five pitchers to the mound, the Classic City Canines posted their second straight shutout, sending the Tigers back to the coast smarting from a 5-0 setback.

Georgia got on the board in the bottom of the first frame, beginning with a one-out triple to right field off the bat of second baseman Nelson Ward. A base hit by shortstop Kyle Farmer brought him home to give the home team a 1-0 lead. That advantage increased to 3-0 in the fourth inning, when the Red and Black loaded the bases with one out on a walk by third baseman Levi Hyams, a single by left fielder Hunter Cole, and a base on balls drawn by first baseman Colby May. This set the stage for right fielder Kevin Ruiz to plate two with a base hit to center field.

The seventh stanza saw Farmer drop a one-out single into left field, take second on a Hyams groundout, and cross home plate on a base hit by Cole to put the Diamond Dogs up, 4-0. Another run was added in the eighth frame, when May led off with a walk, Ruiz reached on a Tiger error, and catcher Brett DeLoach drove an RBI single to center field.

David Sosebee got both the start and the win, though neither he nor any of the four relievers who followed him spent more than two innings on the hill. Savannah State managed no runs, though the Tigers had their chances; the visitors had a man on second with two outs in the second stanza, a man on third with two outs in both the third and the fourth, a man on second with one out in the fifth, a man on third with one out in the sixth, men on second and third with one out in the seventh, and a man on second with one out in the eighth.

The undefeated Diamond Dogs will be back in action on Wednesday against the Western Carolina Catamounts at 5:00 p.m. Eastern at Foley Field.
