Final Stats

ATHENS, Ga. --- The Bulldog bats got off to a hot start, as the offense guided the No. 22 Georgia softball team (30-15) to an 11-1 win in five innings against Georgia State (28-17) on Wednesday evening.

Georgia totaled 14 hits on the night with five Bulldogs notching two hits apiece. Alyssa DiCarlo collected four RBI on her two hits, including a three-run home run to bring in the game-ending runs. Along with DiCarlo, Cortni Emanuel and Alysen Febrey each scored twice in the contest.

Amanda Ablan (1-1) earned the first win of her collegiate career, going the first three innings with two hits, including a solo home run for GSU's only score. The Georgia native walked three while striking out five. Kylie Bass closed it out, going two scoreless frames with two hits and a strikeout.

A two-out home run from GSU in the opening inning was quickly erased, as a six-run first for Georgia put the Bulldogs ahead for good. Georgia capitalized on eight hits and two errors in the frame.

Two more came in the second after Lacey Sumerlin roped a double to left center. After Febrey walked, a hit and error in Brea Dickey's at-bat let Sumerlin score before an RBI single from Jordan Doggett made it an 8-1 ballgame.

DiCarlo closed out the contest in the fifth, as Ciara Bryan reached on a single to right before C. Emanuel got on via an error, setting up the game's final runs with DiCarlo's 11th home run of the season.

Georgia travels to No. 4 Texas A&M this weekend, taking on the Aggies starting Friday. The opening and closing game will be on SEC Network+/WatchESPN while Saturday's contest will be featured on ESPN2.
