AUBURN, Ala. – Fourth-ranked Georgia dropped a Southeastern Conference series at No. 25 Auburn two games to one as the Tigers came from behind to defeat the Bulldogs, 3-2, Sunday at Jane B. Moore Field.

 

Georgia (42-9, 15-8 SEC) won the opening game of the series, 6-1, on Friday, but Auburn (36-15, 13-12 SEC) rebounded to win game two on Saturday, 3-1, and game three on Sunday to earn the series victory.

 

The Bulldogs took an early 2-0 lead in the first but would be held scoreless the remainder of the game as Auburn scratched single runs across in the first, third and sixth innings for the come-from-behind win.

 

In Georgia's half of the first, senior Alisa Goler drew her first of two significant walks in her career with two outs prior senior Brianna Hesson providing a two-run home run to center, her 13th long ball of the year. Goler went on to draw a second walk in the third inning and the two free passes established a new single-season UGA walks record at 57 and extended Goler's UGA career record to 177, which ties Kellie Wilkerson (MSU, 1999-2002) for the all-time SEC walks record.

 

Auburn cut the lead in half with a run in the bottom half of the first and then tied it up with a run in the third. In the first, Kelsey Cartwright recorded a two-out RBI single to left center to score Morgan Estell, who led off the inning with a double off the wall in left. In the third, Estell reached on a hit-by-pitch, moved around to third on a single from Lauren Guzman and scored when Kyndall White reached on a Georgia fielding error.

 

The score remained 2-2 until the Tigers went head in the sixth. Cartwright started the frame off with a double to right center, moved up to third on a sacrifice bunt from Caitlin Schultze and scored on a single from Kelley Smiley that chopped over a drawn in infield into left.

 

Up next, Georgia returns home to Jack Turner Stadium for its final regular season series as Mississippi State comes to Athens for three games May 6-8.
