OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Erinn Webb hit her second career grand slam and Tennessee held off a late rally to beat SEC rival Georgia 7-5 on Friday night at the Women’s College World Series.
The Lady Vols (49-13) never scored more than four runs in a game during three World Series trips with Monica Abbott, the NCAA’s career leader wins and strikeouts. But this is a far different team.
With freshmen making up more than half the roster, Tennessee is manufacturing runs in bunches. The Lady Vols used the mercy rule in beating Arizona 9-0 in their opener, then jumped out to an early seven-run lead against the sixth-seeded Bulldogs (49-12).
Ashley Razey led Georgia’s comeback bid with an RBI single in the fifth and a three-run home run off of freshman Ivy Renfroe (31-4) in the seventh.
