OMAHA–While we wait for the latest lightning delay to end, let’s look ahead to tomorrow’s Georgia-Stanford matchup. It’s been a while since we’ve written about the Bulldogs, who last played Monday against the Cardinal. Ace righty Trevor Holder is fully rested for Georgia, but coach David Perno announced today that he plans to start lefthander Nathan Moreau. That could work out very well if the Bulldogs can clinch their bracket Saturday, because then they’ll have Holder set to go in the finals opener. Otherwise, they can bring Holder back Sunday in a decisive game against Stanford. But this decision also means Holder is very unlikely to pitch twice more out here.
"We’ve decided to go with Nathan Moreau on Saturday," Perno said in a release. "He needs to get out there and pitch because it’s been almost two weeks for him. He has won some big games for us in his career including clinching the SEC title this year at Vanderbilt."
Meanwhile, UGa. third baseman Ryan Peisel shed some light on how the team has been spending its four-day layoff.
"We’re starting to feel like the people in ‘The Shining,’ we’re stuck in the hotel," Peisel said. "We’ve played a lot of video games and practiced a lot. We’re trying not to watch the clock. We even played some marco-polo in the pool. We’re having fun but ready to play a baseball game again."
I suspect LSU and UNC are ready to play some baseball again too, but the skies have opened, and it’s pouring once again. I’m going to have to turn in my meteorologist card.
