QUOTE OF THE GAME

“I knew they were going to throw him the ball, and I was just trying to focus on batting it away. I managed to get a hand on it, but he still tried to make a play on the ball. Bryan came over and got a hit on him, and I felt great when I saw the ball hit the ground and everybody started cheering.” — Georgia’s Brandon Boykin
