Bulldogs Face Owls Tuesday At Foley Field

ATHENS, GA.—— The Georgia Bulldogs play host to Kennesaw State Tuesday at Foley Field. The first pitch will be at 6:02 p.m. and the game will be available on SEC Network+ and the Georgia Bulldog Sports Network.

With three weeks left in the regular season, No. 16 Georgia (30-14) is 12-9 in SEC play, and that puts the Bulldogs in second place in the Eastern Division and third-best overall. Before SEC action resumes, the Bulldogs welcome the Owls to Athens. Georgia defeated Kennesaw State 17-15 on April 12 in Kennesaw. Georgia leads the KSU streak 19-11.

Georgia is a consensus top 25 team again this week and ranks No. 16 in the major polls (USA TODAY Sports Top 25 Coaches) and has the nation’s No. 4 RPI according to the NCAA. The Bulldogs are batting .289 with 52 homers, a 5.34 ERA and a .977 fielding percentage. The Owls are batting .289 with 37 home runs, a 5.57 ERA, and a .964 fielding percentage.

Second LHP Jaden Woods (1-1, 5.84 ERA. 3 SV) will make his first start of the season in a staff night against KSU. In his career, Woods is 5-2 with a 5.10 ERA and four saves in 35 career appearances, including four starts. Woods made a save (3IP, 2H, 3R, 2ER, 1BB, 5K) against the Owls in the earlier meeting. KSU starts junior RHP Jared Rine (3-0, 3.81 ERA, 6 SV). He’s closer to the Owls and didn’t serve in a series loss in North Florida last weekend.

Bulldog Graduate 1B/RF Chaney Rogers (.295-3-26) swings the hottest bat. In four games last week, he hit .467 (7-for-15) with a home run and six RBI. Senior 2B Cory Acton (.269-3-23) also enjoyed a nice run at LSU, hitting .545 (6-for-11) with two homers and three RBI.
Bulldog Graduate LF Connor Tate (.337-8-40) leads the team in batting this season and has been even better in SEC action at .355-5-16. He has a best 19 multi-hit games as a team this year. Against LSU, he had four hits and three were homers plus five RBI. Now in the second year 3B/1B Park Harber (.296-9-42) has his hit count and has 45 hits this season with 42 RBI. In Saturday’s 12-7 away win over No. 20 LSU, he hit a double play in his first at-bat and then went 4-on-4 with two homers.

Senior RHP Jack Gowen (1-0, 1.38 ERA, 9 SV) ranks second in the SEC with nine saves, including seven in league play. His last save came at LSU and it was the third time he had played three innings. Gowen has 9-in-9 save chances this year while the Bulldogs have 13-in-14 save chances overall. His nine saves ranked 10th in school history and the most since Two-Way star Aaron Schunk had 12 in 2019.
