Perno’s Diamond Dawgs got off to another good start with eight runs in the first four innings. Joey Lewis lead the way with a 5 for 6 night that included a homer. He also scored four runs. Georgia beats Arizona 12-5.
This season’s theme has been strong offense and solid starting pitching. Another theme has been Jonathan Taylor (no, not the one from Tool Time, Kyle) and strong leadoff batting. Yesterday, as in the Friday night game, he got on base in the first inning and just absolutely got the ‘Zona starter rattled. Taylor had the most effective 1 for 3 night (it included a walk and stolen base) this side of Rick Henerson’s retirement.
The Dawgs have matched their best start of the Perno era at 7-0.
The Dawgs got the win Friday night in similar fashion. The final game of the series is today at 2pm Eastern, which is like 9:15 or something in Arizona.
