BASEBALL: Red Squad Salvages Sunday
The Red squad posted a 4-1 victory Sunday to avoid a three-game sweep in the Fall World Series at Foley Field.
“I thought we played very clean baseball and the guys competed well in the series,” said Georgia’s Ike Cousins head baseball coach Scott Stricklin. “I was pleased with how it went. We showed power and a really good defense. Some guys stepped up on the mound, and they were facing very good hitters.”
The Black team claimed the three-game Fall World Series 2-1 with seven-inning wins on Friday and Saturday. The Bulldogs conclude fall workouts Friday with an exhibition against the University of Florida on Friday, Oct. 28 in Jacksonville. First at 121 Financial Ballpark (home of the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp) will be at 6:30 p.m.
