Arkansas Falls To Georgia In 10

HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - Joey Lewis hit a sharp grounder down the

third-base line to bring home Matt Cerione in the bottom of the

10th inning and give Georgia a 2-1 victory over Arkansas on

Thursday night in the second round of the Southeastern Conference

baseball tournament.

Georgia broke a scoreless tie in the sixth with back-to-back

doubles from Rich Poythress and Bryce Massanari, giving the

Bulldogs (37-20) a 1-0 lead.

Georgia starter Trevor Holder retired the Razorbacks in order in

six of the first eight innings and allowed only one runner to reach

as far as second base.

But Arkansas (33-21) opened the ninth with consecutive singles,

and then Andy Wilkins hit a sacrifice fly off reliever Dean Weaver

that scored Chase Leavitt from third to tie the game 1-1.

Arkansas will play Florida Friday in an elimination game.

Georgia receives a bye and will not play again until Saturday.
