No. 13 Georgia 8, Boston 1 





The Bulldogs and Terriers (3-5) took the field again on Day Two for a rematch of Friday night’s nightcap. 

The offense scattered nine hits with multi-hit performances coming from junior Sydney Kuma and sophomore Ellie Armistead. Kuma drove in two runs while fellow junior Sara Mosley picked up three RBI thanks to a home run.

Freshman Kylie Macy and sophomore Britton Rogers (3-0) split innings in the circle for the Bulldogs going three and four innings, respectively. Rogers’ five strikeouts against only two hits earned her the win in relief.  





Senior Savana Sikes led off the bottom of the first with a base hit to right field. A pair of walks loaded the bases and a third-straight to Kuma plated Georgia’s first run in the first, 1-0.   

Armistead bunt for a hit in the second inning; on the play, a wild throw to third allowed runner Aniyah Black and Armistead to race around the bases to widen Georgia’s lead to 3-0.

With a double to center field and an RBI base hit in the top of the third, the Terriers cut the lead to two. The Bulldogs lead 3-1 after three.  

Kuma led off the home half of the fifth with a solo shot to center. Later, a run came in to score on a groundout by sophomore Sydney Chambley. Mosley put the exclamation point on the inning with a three-run home run to left center, bringing the tally to 8-1.

Rogers closed out the seventh inning for Georgia forcing a fly-out to left field and striking out the final two batters.

Britton Rogers earned the start in the circle and pitched one and two-thirds innings. Kylie Macy (1-0) came in as relief and pitched two and third innings en route to her first collegiate victory. Freshman Rebecca Muh made her debut in circle for Georgia and pitched the final inning. 

Sikes led off the first inning double for Georgia. Chambley’s bunt on the next at bat allowed Sikes to reach home off a throwing error from Purdue’s pitcher. Mosley singled to right field to plate Chambley. Georgia ended the opening frame ahead 2-0. 

Armistead tripled to centerfield on her first at bat and scored off senior CJ Landrum’s base hit on the next at bat. Chambley stepped up again with a RBI single to drive in Landrum, and the Bulldogs closed out the second up 4-0. 

Six Bulldogs touched home in the bottom of the third. With bases loaded, Armistead singled to left, plating two runs. After a Landrum bunt for a hit to re-load the bases, Sikes poked a single to right to bring the tally to 7-0. Chambley’s two-RBI ripped to right drove in two. On the play, Sikes scored when Chambley was caught in a rundown between second and third, bringing the tally to 10-0.

Purdue homered over the left-field fence in the fourth to post their first run of the game, 10-1.

A three-run home run in the fourth from Bordeau put the Bulldogs up 13-1.
