TOP HEADLINES

GEORGIA TOPPLES CLEMSON

The Georgia Bulldogs racked up another quality win on Tuesday, taking down the Clemson Tigers 6-1 in Athens. It’s the second time this season that UGA has defeated the Tigers, giving them two wins against one of the best teams in the entire nation. Despite falling behind on a leadoff homer by Clemson’s Logan Davidson, the Dawgs responded with a four-run first inning. They would score two runs in the ensuing two innings, one apiece, and never relinquished the lead or allowed another run from there on.

KENTUCKY MISSES AN OPPORTUNITY...

Well, at least for now. The Wildcats took two losses this week, one to Louisville and to Florida. UK certainly has more chances at UF this weekend, but the Wildcats definitely whiffed on a chance to pick up victories against two of the top teams in the nation. Both of the games were routs, as they lost to UL by six runs and then to the Gators by nine.

LSU GETS CLIPPED BY TULANE

The animosity likely won’t stop anytime soon between LSU and Tulane. Especially not after the Fighting Tigers lost 10-9 to the Green Wave earlier this week. The game had a wild finish to say the very least. Trailing 7-3 entering the seventh, LSU added a run, and then put up two to make it 7-6 as they headed into the ninth. The Tigers then plated across three runs to take a 9-7 lead. But things fell apart in the ensuing inning. After a leadoff home run, Tulane tied the game on an RBI double. Two straight intentional walks to set up a force came back to bite them, as LSU lost via the ol’ SHRIMP.
