Just wanted to give you a space to comment on the game, scheduled for 11 a.m. (ESPN3 and regional sports networks, Fox Sports South in Atlanta) Jake Davies (0-3, 6.17 ERA) will pitch for Georgia Tech. The Clemson win Friday night, I’m guessing, changes things a lot for Tech. Conceivably, Danny Hall could have rested Davies Saturday, since the game would have been inconsequential, and saved him for the championship game. Instead, he’ll pitch Saturday and we’ll see what happens if Tech wins today. The likely choice would be Josh Heddinger (3-4, 5.09 ERA), a freshman perhaps notable for two strong starts against Georgia.
Clemson will pitch Kevin Pohle (6-3, 3.25 ERA, .268 opponent batting average). Tech faced him in the third game of the regular-season series and got into him, chasing him after 3 2/3 innings with three earned runs and six hits. Clemson won the game 11-8. Daniel Gossett got the win in relief for the Tigers.
I don’t think I’ll be able to be on much today because of a prior obligation, but hope you enjoy the game.
