STARKVILLE, Miss.—What started out as a pitching duel turned into a 2-0 victory for the No. 7 University of Georgia softball team, as the Bulldogs (20-3, 1-1) took game two of the three-game series at Mississippi State (15-8, 1-3) on Saturday.

 

Senior Erin Arevalo (7-1) earned the victory after going a complete game with nine strikeouts. MSU’s Stephanie Becker (8-3) took the loss after giving up both runs on five hits in 4.2 innings and retiring two batters before Kylie Vry came in as relief for 2.1 innings and gave up two hits while striking out three.

 

Junior Christine Olney led the team offensively with two hits followed by freshmen Niaja Griffin and Gracie Goulder with the only double and home run of the game, respectively. Both teams earned seven hits in the game, but it was the Red and Black that made the most of its opportunities in the fourth and fifth innings.

 

Griffin’s hit down the left field line opened the fourth inning for Georgia. Senior Ashley Razey came up two batters later to get a RBI single to center to make it 1-0. The next inning Goulder came to bat and popped her hit just in fair territory and over the fence to seal the 2-0 win.

 

Georgia faces MSU in the final game on Sunday at 2 p.m. ET in Starkville.
