STATS OF THE MONTH: Georgia’s Sporting Chance

30 Apr

1. Before these very eyes tonight, Atlanta Braves pitcher Tim Hudson earned his 200th career win (and hammered a HR to boot!). The victory over the Washington Nationals makes him only the third active Major League hurler with 200 or more wins.

2. In last week’s NFL draft, the Georgia Bulldogs had the most players ever drafted in school history, equaling the total from 2002.

3. A week ago in Colorado, the Braves‘ brothers, BJ and Justin Upton, hit back-to-back homers. According to Elias Sports Bureau, it was the first time since 1938 that siblings accomplished such a feat.

4. A couple weeks ago, Adam Scott won the Masters Tournament in Augusta, Ga. He is the first Australian ever to win the prestigious green jacket.
