ATHENS-----Georgia will head to Turner Field in Atlanta on Tuesday for the annual meeting with rival Georgia Tech at 7 p.m. It will be the 11th straight year the teams meet at Turner Field, and the Bulldogs hold a 7-3 edge in the "Spring Baseball Classic for Kids," which benefits Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. 

*Georgia’s leading hitter is All-SEC senior third baseman Curt Powell. He is batting .365 with 18 RBI. He ranks second in the SEC with 61 hits this year. In SEC action, Powell is batting .319. In his Bulldog career, Powell has appeared in 157 games including 151 starts with a .335 batting average and a .930 Fielding Percentage.

*Georgia’s top RBI man is senior shortstop Kyle Farmer with 40. He is slated to make his 200th career start Tuesday. He is batting .306 and fielding an impressive .971. For his career, Farmer has made 199 starts at shortstop and owns a .966 fielding percentage while batting .312 with 18 home runs and  164 RBI. He batted a team-best .444 in the series against second-ranked Vanderbilt this past weekend including a pair of home runs off Vanderbilt ace Tyler Beede who had surrendered just one all season and is now 10-0. 

Probable Pitchers: UGA: Bryan Benzor, Sr. 2-2, 4.75 ERA vs. GT: Jonathan King (3-2, 4.01), LHP, Fr.

This will be Benzor’s fourth career start, all this year. Benzor is 1-1 with a 4.05 ERA in four career relief appearances vs. Tech. King started versus the Bulldogs on April 20 (ND, 3.1IP, 7H, 3R, 2K). 

*Senior Blake Dieterich (2-2, 2.73 ERA) earned the win and sophomore Jarrett Brown (0-0, 2.08, 1 SV) notched his first career save in his first closing opportunity in game one of the series against #2 Vanderbilt last Saturday. The Bulldogs posted a 3-1 win over the Commodores who entered the series with a 14-1 SEC mark. Dieterich pitched 2.1 scoreless innings of relief as the high-octane Commodore offense was limited to just five hits and left 11 on base. Brown pitched a perfect ninth with two strikeouts. Brown leads the club with 20 appearances, all out of the bullpen.
