Team Georgia: Game One Recap

PBR Georgia

It is the first day of PBR Future Games and Georgia is taking on New Jersey. Right away Georgia set the tone for the game. Jackson Peavy pitched the first 2 innings going 1-2-3 for both of them. Georgia was able to start the game strong on offense as well. In the 1st inning Jared Glenn sent one all the way to the back wall for a RBI double getting Georgia on the board. Then in the 2nd inning Michael Hunter Stonecipher hit a double to put Georgia in scoring position to then allow John Stuetzer to score on passed ball. Dean Livingston followed Peavy, pitching the 3rd and 4th inning. Livingston produced many swing and misses with his 90-93mph fastball. He allowed only 1 run those 2 innings and was even able to pick off a runner attempting to steal. In the third Georgia put yet another run on the board with Terrance Bowen hitting a double to send John Stuetzer home again. Noah Allen took over the mound for the 5th and 6th inning with an impressive fastball/curveball combo, but could't find the zone consistently, resulting in a big inning for New Jersey. KJ Hart pitching the last 2 inning. He lived in the upper 80's and attacked the zone. He mixed in some swing and miss sliders and change ups that kept the New Jersey hitters guessing. Georgia’s offense slowed down but Michael Hunter Stonecipher got the momentum going again hitting a home run off the very first pitch of the inning in the 5th. Brady Christman then hit a RBI double with a 100EV. Speedsters, Vick Gann and Henry Akopov both had doubles on the day as well. New Jersey rallied as the game went on putting up 11 runs in just three innings to take a dominate lead over Georgia. In the bottom of the 8th Georgia went to put up 4 runs including a 3 run RBI double by John Davis. Ultimately Georgia was not able to catch up to New Jersey losing 11-9. They are looking to turn things around tomorrow against Indiana.
