Diamond Dogs Are in the Hunt in Baseball Standings of Loaded SEC East

Despite having thus far faced a schedule featuring six currently ranked teams, the Diamond Dogs have come together as a club, and the Athenians now find themselves in the thick of the conference race in a division that features three of the top four teams in the country. As of this morning, these are the SEC standings:

Position East Team SEC All West Team SEC All
1 South Carolina Gamecocks 10-2 26-5 Alabama Crimson Tide 7-4 21-12
2 Vanderbilt Commodores 9-2 29-3 Arkansas Razorbacks 5-6 22-8
3 Florida Gators 8-3 25-7 Mississippi St. Bulldogs 5-6 21-10
4 Georgia Bulldogs 8-3 18-14 Auburn Tigers 4-7 17-14
5 Kentucky Wildcats 2-9 16-16 Mississippi Rebels 4-7 19-13
6 Tennessee Volunteers 2-10 19-13 LSU Tigers 3-8 21-10

The Red and Black are a game and a half out of first place in the East, are a game behind second-place Vanderbilt, are tied with the Florida team that will visit Athens next weekend, and are no worse than fourth overall in the league.

The division-leading Palmetto State Poultry already are finished for the weekend, but the Classic City Canines wrap up their series with Ole Miss starting at 2:30, while the first pitch of the Music City Mariners’ concluding contest with Alabama is set for 2:00 and the Sunshine State Saurians’ final outing at Mississippi State gets underway at 1:00.

Go ‘Dawgs!
