Diamond Dawgs in Stark'dville

Perno puts the Diamond Dawgs in the way back Time Machine and takes them on their first SEC road series. When they get there, they'll wake up in the land the 1960s left behind. And hopefully that wakes the team as a whole up as well.
"We've just got to stay confident and keep working," pitcher Justin Grimm said. "People have got to step up when they get opportunities. I'm a veteran and coach Perno expects that out of me. He wants me to come out with a good mentality. If I can do that, then it will help the team get fired up and get something going."
If nothing else, the Diamond Dawgs are facing a team that was also swept last weekend, by Florida. But unlike Georgia, the Missy St Bulldogs rebounded with a mid-week win over Memphis.

A couple wins in Starkville would be a nice way to go into an off week before next weekend's trip to Baton Rouge. After all, it's more than the season's SEC record that's on the line. The series' overall record is firmly in the balance with Georgia leading all time 36-35.

Go Dawgs!
