Georgia 14, Georgia State 7

My enthusiasm for the Diamond Dogs' 2006 season was dampened considerably by the Red and Black's two losses to Alabama at home.  

Following their first win in conference play, though, the Bulldogs appear to have gotten back on track, as Georgia hammered Georgia State on Wednesday.  14-7 is the final score of a competitive football game, but, in baseball, that's a blowout.  

Four different Diamond Dogs hit home runs, including sophomore Ryan Peisel, who drove in five runs, four of which came on a grand slam.  The Red and Black took a six-run lead into the bottom of the first inning and never trailed.  

Now comes the real test:  Georgia travels to Arkansas to take on the Razorbacks, who are ranked No. 11 and sporting a 19-3 ledger for the year.  The three-game series between the Dogs and the Hogs gets underway on Friday night.  

Go 'Dawgs!
