In the nightcap, the Blue Devils pounded Georgia pitchers for nine hits, as Conine hit two more home runs and Jimmy Herron and Zack Kone added additional blasts. Duke let starter Mitch Stallings (seven innings, seven hits, four runs, six strikeouts) and closer Jack Labosky take it from there.
Tucker Bradley led the Bulldogs (39-21) in the first game with two hits and three RBIs, and Aaron Schunk and L.J. Talley provided a little offense with two hits each in the elimination game.
The meat of Georgia’s order had its share of troubles in both games Monday, as Keegan McGovern, Michael Curry and Adam Sasser went a collective 2-for-22 with two runs and one RBI, which came courtesy of a Curry home run in the fourth inning of the second game.
The Blue Devils will play in the Texas Tech Super Regional in Lubbock, Texas.
