1. Auburn Walks Past Eagles

[Georgia Southern walked a season-high 12 batters, the last coming around for the go-ahead run, as the Eagles dropped an 8-6 decision Tuesday night (May 12). The Eagles fell to 35-15 overall.]


2. Why isn’t Erk Russell in the Hall of Fame, too?

[How could that be, you ask, given Russell’s legendary career as defensive coordinator at Georgia and amazing accomplishments in resurrecting the football program at Georgia Southern?

3. Reliever comes up big for T's

[The Braves managed to get a run back in the seventh on Chris Shehan's RBI single, but Adam Jorgenson pitched two shutout innings to earn his fifth save of the season.]


4. Tourists School Braves On Education Day

[Chris Shehan settled under the ball and looked to catch it, but then reached down and dropped the ball to the ground. Beau Seabury had been reading the play and stood halfway between second and third, ready to retreat on a catch or advance on a drop. When he saw Shehan reach down, he took off for third base. Shehan picked up the ball and threw it back to the infield, where shortstop Ryan Barba tagged second base and the umpires ruled it an inning-ending double play. The ruling was that Shehan had caught the ball initially and dropped it when transferring to his throwing hand, resulting in the awkward double play.]


5. Salt Lake Bees: Offensive outburst, Ortega overwhelm Omaha

[Bees catcher Bobby Wilson was promoted to the parent L.A. Angels on Tuesday. His spot on the roster was filled by catcher Flint Wipke, who was promoted from double-A Arkansas.]
