Georgia baseball chase for NCAA tourney spot begins with mighty LSU at Foley Field

ATHENS — Georgia baseball will be putting its season on the line when it takes the field against LSU in the regular-season series finale at Foley Field.

The Bulldogs (28-24, 10-17 SEC) need to sweep mighty LSU (40-12, 17-9) to feel optimistic for an NCAA tournament berth or win at least two of three to keep hopes alive entering the SEC Tournament next week.

The series opens at 6 p.m. tonight with games slated for 6 p.m. on Friday and 1 p.m. on Saturday, each available for streaming on SEC-Plus or radio on the Georgia Bulldog Sports Network.

“Our goal is to continue our season after Hoover, it’s to keep playing,” 10th-year coach Scott Stricklin said. “It would be a very, very disappointing end to our season if we’re not playing in a regional.”

It’s a Bulldogs team that has gone 9-8 in their past 17 games after a 1-9 start and are 7-5 in SEC home games including series wins over No. 4 Arkansas, No. 10 Kentucky and No.18 Tennessee.

But the road has been tough on Georgia, and last weekend’s sweep at the hands of Missouri has put Stricklin’s team on the brink of elimination.
