Not a bad break for the Dawgs getting a regular start time. They take on the Creighton Bluejays at 4pm ET in Game 1 of the Corvallis regional on ESPN3.com. I'm not going all Kyle King on you and give you all the stats you can eat, but it is a break not to play the late game (9pm ET).
The Dawgs will send Palazzone (10-4, 3.20) against Creighton's likely starter Jonas Dufek. Alex Wood will get the nod for Georgia in the second game. It goes without saying that getting a win in the first game is huge, as it gives the Dawgs a chance to limit the number of innings the pitchers have to throw. With 61 games and 532 innings under their belt, any rest is welcome
The winner plays at 9pm ET Saturday against the winner of Oregon State-UALR . Loser plays at 4pm ET Saturday.
