Normally, I don't really keep up with the midweek scrimmages because we usually T.C.O.B. but being that we're instate and GSU's not that bad, here's a little preview of the Jackets-Eagles matchup on Tuesday and Wednesday.
GSU heads into the game 3-0 after sweeping Presbyterian in their first series of the season. Southern was 33-25 last season including a 1-5 record against ACC opponents (GT went 3-0 and BC went 2-1 against the Eagles). The Eagles are led offensively by A.J. Wirnsberger and Ty Wright who are both mid-.300 hitters and capable of going the yard combining for 38 homers last season.
If GSU is looking for quality wins, here's their chance to get some for their NCAA resume against Tech's midweek rotation. I'm not terribly worried about the Eagles as Tech's offense should handle the Eagles B-team pitching staff but crazier things have happened in Statesboro. Tech is 34-12 all time in Statesboro and 80-25 all time against the Eagles.
Any beesball fans out there? I'd also highly suggest attending Tech baseball games for disenchanted Braves fans. I know there are a lot out there right now. Nothing beats the ping of the metal bats.
