LOOKING BACK ON THE SERIES AT TEXAS A&M
Georgia had another tough opponent last weekend, traveling to No. 4 Texas A&M, as the Aggies took the series. Maeve McGuire had a .700 on-base percentage after reaching with two hits and five walks. Ciara Bryan and Sydni Emanuel led the team with three hits each while Cortni Emanuel led the team with two RBI and a stolen base. In the circle, Kylie Bass pitched well despite taking two losses. The Georgia native went nine frames while holding a potent Aggie offense to just three runs with only one being earned.
GEORGIA TAKES DOWN GEORGIA STATE
The Bulldog bats got off to a hot start, as the offense guided Georgia to an 11-1 win in five innings against Georgia State in the team’s last midweek game of the year. Georgia totaled 14 hits on the night with five Bulldogs notching two hits apiece. Alyssa DiCarlo collected four RBI on her two hits, including a three-run home run to bring in the game-ending runs. Along with DiCarlo, C. Emanuel and Alysen Febrey each scored twice in the contest.
Amanda Ablan earned the first win of her collegiate career, going the first three innings with two hits, including a solo home run for GSU’s only score. The Georgia native walked three while striking out five. Bass closed it out, going two scoreless frames with two hits and a strikeout.
