Georgia Baseball's College World Series Hopes Dashed in Super Regional Loss

Athens, GA – Georgia's aspirations of reaching the College World Series were shattered in heartbreaking fashion on Monday night as they suffered a 7-4 defeat to N.C. State in the Super Regionals.

The Bulldogs, who entered the series as the No. 2 seed, were unable to overcome a barrage of home runs by the Wolfpack. N.C. State hit four home runs in total, including a pair of solo shots by Patrick Bailey and a two-run blast by Josh Hood in the fifth inning that gave the Wolfpack a 5-1 lead.

Georgia's offense, which had been so potent throughout the season, was held in check by N.C. State starter Logan Whitaker. Whitaker allowed just three hits and one walk in 5 1/3 innings, striking out nine batters.

The Bulldogs did rally in the sixth inning, scoring three runs off N.C. State reliever Evan Justice. Conor Tate drove in a run with a single, and Riley King followed with a two-run home run to cut the deficit to 5-4.

However, Georgia was unable to sustain the momentum. N.C. State's Kent Klyman came on in relief in the sixth inning and shut down the Bulldogs' offense, retiring the final 10 batters of the game.

The loss marks the end of a successful season for Georgia, who finished with a 36-23 record. However, it is a disappointing conclusion for a team that had high hopes of making a deep run in the NCAA Tournament.

N.C. State, meanwhile, advances to the College World Series for the third time in four years. The Wolfpack will face Stanford in the opening round on Saturday.

Georgia will now turn their attention to next season, where they will look to rebound from this disappointing result and make a run at the national championship.
