Georgia puts on a show against GT

  Alex Hugo finished 2-for-4 with two home runs, including a grand slam, and eight RBI.

ATLANTA -- Alex Hugo hit her first grand slam as a Bulldog to lead the No. 8 Georgia to a 14-0, five-inning shutout against in-state rival Georgia Tech on Wednesday, March 18 at Mewborn Field in Atlanta. With the win, Georgia improved to 25-5 on the season, while Georgia Tech dropped to 11-16 on the year. The win marked the fifth consecutive win against the Yellow Jackets. Georgia has outscored Georgia Tech 72-10 during its current five-game win streak, including 43-2 in the three games that have been played in Atlanta.

Chelsea Wilkinson picked up her 14th win of the season to improve to 14-3 on the year. She did not allow a hit and faced just one batter of the minimum, while striking out four in four innings of work. Brittany Gray closed out the game, throwing the final inning and striking out two. The duo combined to throw Georgia's fifth no-hitter of the year, the most n- hitters in a single season since 2004.

Kylie Kleinschmidt suffered the loss to fall to 3-10 on the year. She allowed six runs, four earned, on four hits, a walk and a hit batter in two innings of work. Christina Biggerstaff and Emily Anderson combined to throw the final three innings, allowing eight runs on nine hits.

In addition to Hugo's grand slam, she also hit a solo home run, marking the first time in her Georgia career that she has hit two home runs in a game. Hugo finished 2-for-4 with three runs and eight RBI. Sydni Emanuel went 3-for-3 with four runs scored, one RBI and was hit by a pitch. Tina Iosefa had a 2-for-3 day with three RBI.

Following Wilkinson's masterful performance, where she set down eight consecutive batters, Gray came in to close things out. She faced four batters, striking out two to seal the 14-0 shutout.
