Georgia begins a 16-game homestand Tuesday starting with Furman (3-4) and featuring Ga. State (4-3) Wednesday and a three-game set with Binghamton (3-4) Friday. This past weekend, the Bulldogs dropped a pair of games at fourth-ranked Florida State, and the series finale was cancelled due to rain. Georgia is batting .259 with a 7.62 ERA, however the defense has been excellent, fielding at a .986 clip. Georgia fielded a perfect 1.000 in the series at FSU, playing in front of more than 11,000 fans .
Junior Hunter Cole has enjoyed a fast start, batting a team-best .478-1-6 and displaying perfect fielding in 17 total chances in left field. Against #4 FSU, Cole hit .375 (3-for-8) with a double, home run and three RBI. He has hit safely in all six games this season.
Sophomore Jess Posey led the team with a .444 average in the series versus #4 FSU, going 4-for-9 with a home run and two RBI. It was the first home run allowed by the Seminoles this year. Posey's two older brothers played at Florida State. For the year, Posey is batting .280-1-6 as the starting third baseman.
Freshman centerfielder Stephen Wrenn is 4-for-4 in stolen bases this year to lead the squad. He is batting .240 and has a five-game hitting streak.
Freshman RHP Robert Tyler (0-0, 1.69 ERA) made his starting debut against Kennesaw State last week and did not factor in the decision. In two outings this year, has 5.1 innings pitched and allowed one earned run with no walks and three strikeouts.
Georgia aims to get a pair of projected starters back this weekend in shortstop Mike Bell and first baseman/pitcher Jared Walsh. Neither has played yet this season. Bell is on the mend from a broken hand while Walsh likely will see his first action on Sunday.
Tuesday's pitching matchup will be senior LHP Patrick Boling (0-1, 3.38) versus Furman freshman RHP Matthew Quarles (0-0, 2.57). Radio/TV Information
