ATHENS— Top-ranked Georgia scored double-digit runs for the 11th time and held Le Moyne to just two hits in a 12-0 win over the Dolphins Wednesday at Foley Field.

The Bulldogs’ 14th straight win to start the season ties the second longest winning streak in school history.

“It was great pitching today by both sides,” Georgia coach David Perno said. “They were really on the hunt and we were able to come through. A fourteen game winning streak is impressive, but you really have to win the SEC games. Nothing we have done up to this point is really going to help us other than the confidence that it has built inside these guys.”

Chase Hawkins (1-0) worked five innings and gave up just one hit. The freshman from Snellville held Le Moyne (2-8) without a hit until two outs in the fifth.

Colby May had three hits and two RBI, Rich Poythress and Chase Davidson both homered, and Joey Lewis also added a pair of hits including his SEC-leading 10th double.

Poythress finished with five RBI and leads the league with 32 this season. Michael Demperio had a hit, two walks and scored three runs.
