Georgia to play for tournament title after 5-3 win against Alabama

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- The fourth-seeded Georgia earned a berth in the Southeastern Conference tournament championship game after handing the top-seeded and SEC regular-season champion Alabama a 5-3 loss. With the win, the Bulldogs are now 44-12 on the year, while Alabama dropped to 45-11. Also with the win, the Bulldogs have now defeated five conference top-10 teams for the first time in program history.

The victory set up a showdown with the Kentucky Wildcats for the SEC tournament title.

Alex Hugo delivered the game-winning hit in the top of the seventh, with a towering two-run home run that put the Bulldogs up 5-3. Geri Ann Glasco led off the inning with a double. Hugo finished 2-for-3 with a walk, two runs and two RBI. Tina Iosefa and Paige Wilson also recorded two hits for the Bulldogs.

Chelsea Wilkinson got her second consecutive win in the SEC tournament, throwing the final 5.2 innings, allowing just one run on four hits and striking out five. She is now 28-7 on the year. Her 28 wins are the most by a Georgia pitcher since 2007 when Kasi Carroll earned 29. Glasco got the start, throwing 1.1 innings for the Bulldogs and giving up two runs on two hits and two hit batsmen. Sydney Littlejohn suffered the loss to fall to 10-2 on the year.
