Go Beesball Jackets!

There are a dozen bell ringing, loudly laughing women upstairs playing bunco.

That makes it a perfect evening to hide out in the basement and watch Tech and UGA face off down at the Ted.

Both teams have slipped a bit from their lofty rankings earlier in the season.  Tech is ranked 7th at 33-12-1 and are coming off a dramatic series win against #6 FSU this past weekend.  UGA is 34-17 and ranked around 15 after a recent 8 game losing streak.  The fact that they were able to lose 8 games in a row and maintain a ranking of any sort speaks to the regard pollsters have for the Bulldogs.  They’re not a team to be overlooked.

Tech knocked off UGA earlier in the season when the Dawgs were ranked #1 and right now, in the top of the third inning, the Jackets are leading 2-1.  UGA scored in the opening frame to go up 1-0 before the Jackets took advantage of an error and a balk in the second inning to go up by the current 2-1 margin.

It looks like UGA has a runner on base in the third with one out…time to go focus on the game again…

Ok, maybe I need to stay here on the computer and follow things on Gametracker.  As soon as I went back to the TV, Bryce Massanari went deep for UGA to make the score 3-2.

Tech got out of the inning without any additional damage.  Now its time to see if the Jackets offense can rough up Justin Earls, who is in as a reliever for UGA.  Earls is 0-1 with 9.12 ERA in just over 24 IP this season.  Surely we can score some runs on this guy.

The Jackets go down 1-2-3 to end the third inning and now UGA is threatening again in the 4th.

I’m officially a jinx…its time to step away from the keyboard!

Checking back in…The Jackets are up in the 6th now trailing 5-2.  Its time to make a move and put a few runs on the board!

GT leads off their half of the inning with back to back hits, getting two men on with no outs…and come they up empty after a strike out, pop out, and lineout…

The Jackets grab three runs in the 7th to tie it up…but UGA gets two in the 9th to go back ahead 7-5.

Maybe next time I’ll just stay upstairs and watch the ladies play Bunco.

FSU was ranked 16th not 6th Ramble. Both teams should make the national tourney, lets just hope they don’t match us up against each other in the Super Regional like they have done before. We know what happens.

the TED (Tech’s Eventual Demise) is a killer for the JACKETS but DAMN it does make money for a good cause. Started bad, got better, and then got BAD. Still a great season. Beat DUKE and let’s roll.

LOL—a season split is good for both schools. We missed the rainout game but that is ok it should keep bothside from talking too much crap.

Pi$$onaDAWG, nothing keeps the uga trolls from talking trash. If we don’t beat them, the talk trash; if we do beat them, they STILL talk trash. To try to understand the thought process of one of these guys would require more resources than is physically possible.

Hey razorGT, I find it ironic that you would talk about UGA talking trash when all I have read for the last six months is 45-42 hahahahaha. Also, how bout all the junk about criminals and thugs? What’s funny about all this is Tech has won one little football game in 8 years by 3 points and you would think they won the NC. I might add that from what I’ve read, Tech’s academics and behavior aren’t exactly without blemish. I went to the baseball game at Turner field Tuesday, and from what I saw, both Tech and UGA have good programs. It would be nice if these blogs contained more sharing of info instead of the childish bickering and upstaging that goes on.

Proud of what Tech has done….but be careful about overlooking the Ga. State Panthers. One win away from winning the Colonial conference title and heading to the NCAA regionals. Panthers beat Tech on TV at Tech 11-1 earlier in the season. Go Panthers!!!
