ATHENS — Gainesville High graduate Michael Curry homered twice Sunday, June 3, as the University of Georgia baseball team moved within one win of hosting an NCAA Super Regional. The Bulldogs defeated Troy 11-7.
Top-seeded Georgia will face No. 2 seed Duke Monday, June 4, with the Bulldogs only needing to win once to earn the Athens regional title and the Blue Devils needing to win twice.
Curry was 3-for-5 at the plate with four RBIs and two runs scored. Keegan McGovern also had a pair of homers for Georgia.
The Bulldogs (39-19), who are the No. 8 national seed, would advance to the Super Regional with a win at 1 p.m. Monday, but a loss would set up a winner-take-all regional final at 5 p.m.
Sunday’s victory against third-seeded Troy came a day after Georgia opened regional play with an 18-5 win against fourth-seeded Campbell. The regional schedule has been shuffled from its original form because of heavy rain in Athens during the weekend.
The winner of the Athens regional will be matched against Texas Tech in a Super Regional.
