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
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.
