Georgia Tech Falls to No. 10 Georgia
Jackets back in action at Pittsburgh for weekend series
THE FLATS – The Georgia Tech softball team (16-25) fell to No. 10 Georgia (35-8), 15-0 (5), Wednesday evening at Mewborn Field.
“I thought Georgia played a great game,” head coach Shelly Hoerner said. “They hit very well and executed when they needed to. We have to clear our minds and have a short-term memory. We’ve got a big weekend ahead of us with Pitt, so that’s what we’re focusing on right now.”
How It Happened
In the first frame, Georgia hit a three-run home run to go up 3-0. The Bulldogs hit two doubles to add an additional run in the second to go up 4-0. Georgia went up 6-0 thanks to a two-out solo shot to left and an RBI double in the third.
The Jackets sat the Bulldogs down in succession in the fourth inning, but a nine-run fifth frame sealed the deal for Georgia, 15-0.
Georgia’s Chelsea Wilkinson (20-2) earned the win, and Kylie Bass threw an inning in relief.
Georgia Tech is back in action with a three-game series at Pittsburgh. The series begins April 16 with a doubleheader at 1 p.m., followed by a single game Sunday at 12 p.m.
