BSB: Georgia crushed fifth-ranked Tennessee 16-2 Friday in seven innings

Corey Collins

Georgia senior first baseman Corey Collins, the reigning SEC Player of the Week, went 2-for-3 with two home runs and six RBI to lead a 14-hit attack. The Bulldogs (22-4, 4-3 SEC), who lead the country in home runs, crushed four more Friday to give them 78 on the year as the Vols (22-5, 3-4 SEC) lost for just the second time at home. Also, it marked the first time they had been run-ruled at home since the SEC put the rule in last year. Bulldog graduate Charlie Goldstein provided six strong innings, scattering nine hits, two unearned runs, no walks and three strikeouts to improve to 4-0.

The Bulldogs exploded for six runs on four hits in the second inning, sending 10 men to the plate. With one out and the bases loaded, sophomore Kolby Branch drilled an 0-2 offering to the gap in left center for a bases-clearing double. Freshman Trey King collected his first career hit in his first SEC start and then Collins smashed his 11th home run, a three-run shot to make it 6-0. Bulldog junior Henry Hunter led off the third with a single and senior Fernando Gonzalez made it 8-0 with a two-run home run, his fifth of the year. With two on and two out, the Vols lifted junior AJ Causey in favor of Chris Stamos. Coming in Friday, Causey had a 5-0 mark and 1.91 ERA, allowing only seven earned runs on the year. However, the Bulldogs tagged him for eight runs (seven earned) on seven hits in 2.2 innings as he dropped to 5-1.

The Vols cut it to 8-2 in their half of the third. They loaded bases with nobody out when Goldstein got Christian Moore to bounce into a double play. With two outs, Kavares Tears lined a run-scoring to double before the Bulldogs escaped further damage. The Vols put two on with nobody out in the fourth and came up empty as Goldstein got Cannon Peebles to flyout and then the Bulldogs turned another double play.

In the fifth, Branch led off with a walk and took second on a sacrifice bunt by King. UT went to the bullpen in freshman Derek Schaefer. Collins drew a walk before Schaefer came back to strike out Charlie Condon. However, Slate Alford delivered a two-run double and Dylan Goldstein followed with a run-scoring doubles to push the lead to 11-2.

“We came out and Charlie attacked the strike zone, we played good defense and got timely hitting,” said Georgia’s Ike Cousins head baseball coach Wes Johnson. “Our offense did a phenomenal job early in the game of not chasing and pushed their starter into some counts that were favorable to us. We got some good swings and did some damage. What Corey Collins is doing right now is hard to talk about. It’s impressive. We had a lot of good hits up and down the lineup. We turned some big double plays and made plays around the diamond including Charlie Condon in centerfield.”

In the sixth, Clayton Chadwick collected his third home run of the season. After Branch and King reached with singles, Collins struck again with another three-run home run for a 15-2 advantage. Last week, Collins batted .647 (11-for-17) with six home runs and 13 RBI in four games.In the seventh, Georgia added its final run on a sacrifice fly Gonzalez. Graduate Brian Zeldin took care of the Vols in the seventh including a pair of strikeouts.

The series continues Saturday with first pitch at 5:02 p.m., and the game will be available on the SEC Network and the Georgia Bulldog Sports Network.

WGOLF: Bulldogs in second place at the UGA Golf Course in the 52nd annual Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic

The Georgia women’s golf team shot 3-over 579 in Friday’s first two rounds of the 52nd annual Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic, leaving the No. 25-ranked Bulldogs in second place on the team leaderboard at the UGA Golf Course.

Georgia enters Saturday’s final round six strokes off the pace of No. 10 Auburn. The Bulldogs’ B team enjoyed a solid day as well, shooting 14-over 590 to land in seventh place and ahead of two top-25 teams.

“I’d rather be leading, truthfully, especially with the start we had,” head coach Josh Brewer said. “We started really strong and made just a few errors to get ourselves back in second place. But we’re in the final group and it would be nice to be there for the final event of the regular season.”

Georgia played the back half of the UGA Course first on Friday and did so at a blistering pace. The Bulldogs were 6-under as a team on 10-18 in the morning round and played the same nine holes at 5-under in the afternoon.

Caterina Don led the Bulldogs in both loops, shooting 2-under and 5-under, respectively. Individually, she is in second place, a stroke behind Carla Bernat of Kansas State.

“It was fun,” Don said. “I played well. I made a bunch more putts than I usually do so the score was lower. I was excited about that and the fun energy that was around us. It’s nice to play at home, and I enjoyed the day.”

The Bulldogs were in second, two shots back of Augusta, following on opening round effort of 2-over 290. In addition to Don’s 70, Georgia counted a 72 from LoraLie Cowart, a 73 from Natachanok “Drive” Tunwannarux and a 75, to score posted by both Savannah De Bock and Napat “Jenny” Lertsadwattana.

Georgia’s B team shot 299 and was in ninth after the morning. Kate Song paced those Bulldogs with an even-par 72, followed by a 74 from Bernice Olivarez Ilas, a 75 from Isabella Holpfer and a pair of 78s from Celine Brovold Sanne and Grace Frei.

The A team carded a 1-over 289 in the afternoon by mixing Don’s 67 with a 73 from De Bock, a 74 from Lertsadwattana and a 75 from Tunwannarux.

The B Bulldogs posted a 3-over 291 by counting a 1-under 71 from Holpfer, an even-par 72 from Brovold Sanne, a 73 from Olivarez Ilas and a 75 from Song.

Following Auburn and Georgia in the team field and rounding out the top-10 teams are No. 15 Florida at 584, Augusta and Kansas State at 585, Alabama at 589, Georgia’s B team at 590, Illinois at 591, No. 23 Virginia at 593 and No. 24 SMU at 595.

“We have depth,” Brewer said. “It’s just the people who are competing at the top have to show up. If not, as it has been proven in the past, some people have used this event as a springboard the rest of the year. It’s an important round tomorrow, especially for our seniors. It’s their last regular-season round, and it may be their last round ever wearing the G.”

On the individual leaderboard after Don, Holpfer is tied for 15th at 146; Song and Olivarez Ilas are tied for 18th at 147; De Bock and Tunwannarux are tied for 26th at 148; Lertsadwattana is tied for 35th at 149; Brovold Sanne is tied for 42nd at 150; Cowart is tied for 48th at 151; and Frei is tied for 70th at 157.

“It tells a lot about us,” Don said. “There are a lot of great players on our team who push each other to get better every day. It tells the people on both teams this weekend that they can compete for a top SEC team and one of the best teams in the country. They should be proud of themselves, and they should be ready to attack the day tomorrow.”

Don is approaching Saturday’s final round with a simple goal.

“I just want to have fun,” Don said. “It’s my last round on this golf course competitively. It’s my last round of regular season golf forever. I just want to go out there and fun and enjoy it with my friends and everybody around me tomorrow.”

Saturday’s second round will begin with traditional tee times starting at 8:30 a.m. Georgia’s A team will be paired with Auburn and Florida, beginning at No. 1 in intervals between 10:05-10:41. The Bulldogs’ B squad will go from hole No. 1 along with Alabama and Augusta between 9:20-9:56. Live scoring for the tournament is available via www.golfstat.com.

Despite professional seasons beginning to wind down at home and overseas, several Georgia basketball alums are continue to star for their respective squads. 

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and the Denver Nuggets have lost just one of the last nine games, a narrow two-point decision to the Dallas Mavericks on March 17. In the last six games, Caldwell-Pope has tallied 51 points (8.5 ppg), 13 rebounds (2.2 rpg), 12 assists (2.0 apg), eight blocks (1.3 bpg) and 10 steals (1.7 spg), bringing his season totals to 647 points (9.9 ppg), 153 rebounds (2.4 rpg), 154 assists (2.4 apg), 36 blocks (0.6 bpg) and 89 steals (1.9 spg).

Nic Claxton has scored 65 points (10.8 ppg) with 49 rebounds (8.2 rpg), 13 assists (2.2 apg), eight blocks (1.3 bpg) and five steals (0.8 spg) in his last six games for the Brooklyn Nets as the team moved to 26-45 to remain in 11th place in the Eastern Conference.

The Minnesota Timberwolves and Anthony Edwards have slid out of their joint occupation of first place in the Western Conference with the Oklahoma City Thunder, and the team currently owns a 49-22 record, good for third place in the conference. Edwards, in his last five games, has 132 points (26.4 ppg), 44 rebounds (8.8 rpg), 34 assists (6.8 apg), five blocks (1.0 bpg) and six steals (1.2 spg).

On the season, Edwards has 1,798 points (26.4 ppg) – good for top 15 in the league, 377 rebounds (5.5 rpg), 351 assists (5.2 apg), 40 blocks (0.6 bpg) and 86 steals (1.3 spg).

The Long Island Nets are in fifth place in the Eastern Conference with an 18-14 record.

Season to date, Florveus has tallied 327 points, with 146 of those points coming after making his midseason transfer from fellow Bulgarian side, Levski. 

Rayshaun Hammonds continues to be a force offensively for Avtodor in the Russian VTB United League having scored in double digits in all but four of his 33 games this season.
