The Georgia softball team outhit No. 3 Florida on Sunday evening but could not avoid their fifth loss in a row as the Gators took the game 4-1 at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium.

Georgia outhit the Gators with eight on the night, as Ciara Bryan led the squad with a pair of hits, including a double, off of Florida pitcher Delanie Gourley (13-2).
Florida finished the game with six hits, including four off of Mary Wilson Avant (5-5) as she allowed all four runs and a walk in 1.2 innings. Kylie Bass finished the game for the second night in a row, giving up a pair of hits and a walk while striking out six.
The home team quickly jumped out to a 4-0 lead after two played. A sacrifice fly from Kayli Kvistad in the first gave the Gators an early advantage before a three-run second, highlighted by a two-RBI hit by Amanda Lorenz, put them up for good.
Georgia took a run back in the fifth, as Cortni Emanuel and Sydni Emanuel posted back-to-back hits to put runners on for a RBI hit from Lacey Sumerlin. The Bulldogs left nine runners on base after having at least one on in five of the seven frames and had a runner on third in three.
