Buffalo Bulls 10 - Georgia Bulldogs 11

New, 1 comment

The Buffalo Bulls entered their most challenging weekend of the season with a chance to prove that their 6-1 record was not merely the result of a favorable draw in the early goings of the season. While the bulls owuld be considered considerable underdogs to Georgia and Western Carolina the UB players came out swinging as if they were the favorites.

After three innings the Bulls held a 7-3 lead before a disastrous 5th that turned the remainder of the contest into a dog fight.

Jimmy Topps got a leadoff double to start the game before Tyler Mautner his a sac fly to score him in the first.

In the second Inning UB would score three more only to be matched by Georgia. Then in the third the Bulls would pull away.

UB seemed to be in full control of the game until the 5th inning. Three errors would allow for five runs to cross the plate in the home half of the inning and give Georgia the 8-7 lead. The fielding issues chased starter Mike McGee from the game, as the UGA offense would frustrate the junior lefty by drawing six walks and plating four runs (two earned) off of him in just over four innings of work. Cory Folk would also be stung by the defensive miscues, and would be tagged for five runs (three earned) in 1.1 innings of relief.

In its last chance to make the comeback in the top of the ninth, Pollock hit a one-out triple to right field and would come home on a sacrifice fly from Mautner, but the Bulls would run out of outs and lose by a lone run.
