With an 8-0 win over Michigan State on Sunday, the Georgia softball team not only swept the Bulldog Invitational over the weekend but also earned their 7th win in a row. It was also the Bulldogs’ third undefeated weekend at home, and it took only 5 innings of work against the Spartans to complete the sweep.
Brittany Gray got the start, and the junior pitcher was dominant from the mound. She pitched a complete game allowing just two hits to earn her 12th win on the season. The Ladies also were stout on defense to help Gray, and Michigan State only had six baserunners for the game.
Georgia’s bats were hot, and sisters Cortni Emanuel and Sydni Emanuel led the Bulldogs with two hits apiece at the top of the lineup. Cortni Emanuel stole three bases on the day, giving her 26 on the season, and also scored twice. Not to be outdone, Sydni Emanuel and sophomore Lacey Sumerlin also each added two RBIs apiece.
The Bulldogs were fast as lightning out of the gate scoring six runs in the first two innings, 2 in the first and adding 4 in the second. Georgia added two more in the third taking an 8-0 lead and never looked back.
