Series Information
Georgia leads the all-time series against Auburn 33-14. The Bulldogs swept the Tigers last weekend in Auburn. Georgia has won five of the last six games against Auburn. 

Notes
A LOOK BACK: Georgia completed a sweep of Georgia Tech in the regular-season series with a 15-1 over the Yellow Jackets on Wednesday. With the win, Georgia improved to 25-2 in non-conference games. 

EVERYBODY IN: In Georgia’s 15-1 win over Georgia Tech, every player on the Georgia roster got in the game. It marked the first time this season that the Bulldogs played everyone on its roster. 

SCORING IN EVERY AT BAT: Georgia scored at least one run in each of its five at bats against Georgia Tech on Wednesday. It was the second time this season that the Bulldogs scored in every at bat. It was the first time since 2010 that a Georgia team has scored in every inning when it has batted five times in a game. The last time it happened was a 9-0, five-inning win against Texas. 

OFFENSIVE RHYTHM: In the past two games, the Georgia offense has found its rhythm, scoring 26 runs over 11 innings. Georgia posted 11 runs in a six-inning loss at LSU before bouncing back to score 15 runs against Georgia Tech on Wednesday.

BIG BATS: Katie Browne and Tina Iosefa have displayed their power over the past week. Each has hit five home runs this season, however, they have each hit three in the past four games for the Bulldogs. Browne and Iosefa each hit a pair of home runs against LSU last weekend before recording a home run in Wednesday’s game against Georgia Tech.
