USC Hands Georgia Its First Loss In 2006 With 9-5 Win
March 3, 2006
LOS ANGELES --- USC sent 11 batters to the plate as part of a six-run seventh inning Friday as the Trojans defeated the Georgia Bulldogs, 9-5, in nonconference action at Dedeaux Field. The Trojans handed the Bulldogs (7-1) their first loss of the season.
Freshman David Parrow (Nanakuli, Hawaii/Kamehameha Schools) earned his first collegiate win with 1 1/3 perfect innings, followed by two perfect innings by reliever John Dunn (Torrance/West HS). Dunn has not allowed a run in his last 15 innings.
USC improved to 9-8 on the season and took advantage of 10 walks by Georgia pitchers.
Joey Side had two hits for the Bulldogs and is 5-for-10 for the weekend. Jason Jacobs also had two hits on the night for Georgia.
Georgia led 4-1 in the fifth when USC head coach Mike Gillespie was ejected from the game for arguing a possible double play to end the inning and the Trojans responded with an 8-1 run. The Trojans walked three times and were hit by a pitch twice, including once with the bases loaded, as part of the seventh inning.
The series finale is tomorrow at 1 p.m. The game will be broadcast live on usctrojans.com with the video webcast courtesy of College Sports' All-Access.
