OMAHA–Going to Drew Storen was the right move, but Mark Marquess could have gone to Mariano Rivera and it might not have mattered against Rich Poythress. The Georgia cleanup hitter is red-hot, and he came through again with the bases loaded, lining a two-run single to center field to give the Bulldogs a 6-1 lead.
Storen got out of the inning without any further damage, getting Bryce Massanari to pop out to third and striking out Matt Cerione, who has looked just terrible in this game. Cerione is Georgia’s leading hitter in the postseason, and maybe he’s trying too hard to be the hero today, because he’s come up three times with runners on base and taken enormous hacks, stepping in the bucket after each swing. Incidentally, he has struck out three straight times, failing each time to catch up with a fastball.
