Fortunately, there is bigger news in Bulldog Nation to report today, so I will keep this short and sweet: Georgia lost the baseball rubber match to Arkansas on Sunday, as the Diamond Dogs were shut out in the Natural State.

Starting pitcher Pete Nagel took the loss for his first decision of the season, despite lasting only two innings. The freshman right-hander faced a dozen batters, conceding two hits, three bases on balls, and three earned runs. A two-out bases-loaded walk in the second stanza plated one run, then the third frame saw the Hogs score four runs on a hit batsman, a home run, a walk, a stolen base, a trio of singles, and a balk.

The Red and Black squandered a scoring opportunity in the sixth canto. Center fielder Conor Welton and second baseman Levi Hyams opened the visitors’ turn at the plate with consecutive base hits, but the next three Georgia batters registered outs to strand them. The Athenians left seven men on base over the course of the contest.

The eighth frame saw Arkansas pad its lead with a leadoff walk, a single, a sacrifice, and another base hit to tack on another run. An RBI groundout brought home one more, and an additional single closed out the scoring to give the Razorbacks an 8-0 victory.

The Georgia lineup combined for eight strikeouts, six hits, and one walk. The Diamond Dogs’ leadoff hitter (Nelson Ward), cleanup hitter (Hunter Cole), and designated hitter (Brett DeLoach) combined to go one for nine with three strikeouts, while the Classic City Canines’ bullpen gave up nine hits and five earned runs. The Athenians committed no errors, but, otherwise, the Red and Black did nothing well in losing today’s game and, as a result, this weekend’s series.
