TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—Georgia’s bats certainly showed up in the opening game of the Tallahassee Regional on Friday. Following a five-hour, 12-minute delay for rain and lightning, the Bulldogs finished putting up a season high in hits (23) and runs, taking out Ohio State 24-8.
The offense was led by first baseman Rich Poythress (4-for-4, 2 BB, 7 RBI) who belted three home runs on the day, including a grand slam, part of a 10-run eighth inning.
Center fielder Matt Cerione added a second grand slam in the bottom of the eighth. Georgia hit seven homers in the game, pushing the Bulldogs’ total on the season to 105, a new school record. Poythress now has 24 homers on the season, putting him second on Georgia’s single-season list, behind only Gordon Beckham’s 28 last year.
Georgia will get the winner of tonight’s Florida State-Marist tilt. Ohio State will play the loser of the FSU/Marist game tomorrow at 12 p.m.
