Offense kept up the hit parade tonight behind a masterful performance by Gray. All of her pitches were working and she was hitting the corners to batters on both sides of the plate. If we can continue to get these kinds of performances from her and Bass, I like our chances of finishing higher than 9th in the conference. 😉

Georgia’s offense looks good. 12 home runs this weekend. Burton was on fire all weekend and is playing great. Milz and DiCarlo also sound like they are off to a good start. But I’ve always believed that offense wins games and defense wins championships. If the pitching continues like this, Georgia is on its way to being a force.

I agree with both of you. It appears as though the defense seems to be more comfortable this season to me as well. Like DiCarlo appears to be a natural SS. But gray appears super confident this season and in such command of every game she pitched in

Really loved what I saw from UGA this weekend. I'd like to see Mathis get more innings and I'd love to see the staff strategy throughout the season. It'd be nice to see multiple pitchers in a game with the arms they have all year.

Nope. I expect her to next weekend, though.

With back-to-back-to-back weekends against cupcake competition (including our first of two games against Georgia Tech), I like Georgia's chances of being a one or two loss team headed into the Arkansas series (at home in Athens). With Kentucky, Ole Miss, and Missouri all struggling early on, it makes our schedule look a little less intimidating than some may have originally expected. 

It helps that our two hardest series (Florida and Alabama) are at home, although Ole Miss, Miss State and Tennessee on the road will be tough too. If the girls continue to drill the ball on offense like they have been, I like our chances of hosting a Regional. I know it's super early to call that, but hey, I'm feeling bold. 😃 

I'm hoping to see Kendall and Brit get some national recognition this week! 

Gray: 3-0 (wins against SDSU, Utah, and Oregon State); 0.00 ERA, 16 IP, 17 K, .161 Opp Avg

Burton: 13-for-18 (.722), 2 HR, 5 RBI

I agree. My thing is the defense. If they are strong behind gray she will be lights out this season, potentially better overall stats than Chelsea Wilkinson. but from the first 5 games this season, the defense seems more comfortable, as does gray. And it also appears as though some power that Georgia is historically known for has emerged this season. I’m hoping for a great season. But I have my money on us getting series wins over Kentucky, miss state, Missouri, Arkansas and maybe the ole miss series. I do believe we will pick up a game here or there and be higher than 9th in the conference.

Woof...Winthrop looks all kinds of bad...UGA usually plays them every year (for as long as I can remember) and I can't think of a time that their defense was this atrocious. Dropped pop ups, singles turning into triples due to bad outfield routes, missed scoops at 1B...eek..

Their pitcher has decent stuff but can't locate it at all and is having to throw all over the plate.

Hoping we can pad the stats against this kind of competition the next few weeks before hosting Arky. Let's not get too used to this, though...

Georgia caps off an undefeated weekend with a 2-0 win over Evansville. I was super impressed with the Evansville ace, Florey, and could easily see her being successful at a bigger program. Although Georgia seemed to play a bit lethargically today, glad to see them win the games they're expected to win. With all these upsets happening, there's no room for error against anyone. 

Bass was phenomenal this weekend, going 2-0 and striking out 20 batters in 13 innings of work. In two complete games, she only surrendered thrr hits (all coming in today's game) and threw the no-hitter earlier in the weekend. Albeit against lower competition, it would be great to see her get some recognition! The work she has put in on developing better control of the rise has been a key asset for the Dawgs early on.
