NCAA Softball Final Score, UGA Vs. Baylor: Bears Advance To Women's College World Series

The Baylor Bears have eliminated the Georgia Bulldogs from the 2011 NCAA postseason, advancing to the Women's College World Series after taking a 9-2 Game 3 from the Dawgs.

Baylor tore out to a 5-0 early lead that sent Morgan Montemayor to the dugout ahead of schedule. Erin Arevalo took over and held Baylor scoreless as Georgia pulled within three by the fourth inning. That lasted until a fifth inning Baylor explosion that included Sydney Wilson socking just her second home run of the season. Baylor starter Whitney Canion avenged UGA's Game 2 outburst by jolting a homer of her own in the sixth, and that was about that.

The rest of the WCWS field, in order of seed: Alabama, Arizona State, Florida, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma and California. The other spot could go to either Missouri or Washington -- those two will wrap up their series later Sunday.

Athens Super Regional results: 

Baylor def. Georgia, 4-1 (1-0)

Georgia def. Baylor, 14-2 (1-1)

Baylor def. Georgia, 9-2 (2-1)

2011 NCAA Softball Super Regionals, UGA Vs. Baylor Score: Bulldogs Pummel Bears In Game 2

The Georgia Bulldogs entered Sunday needing a pair of wins against the Baylor Bears to make it to the 2011 Women's College World Series. One down, one to go, as UGA asserted itself to the tune of a 14-2 mercy-rule win in Game 1. Jolting home runs left and right, Georgia played like Georgia after mustering just a single run Saturday night.

Baylor's Whitney Canion gave up three home runs by the third inning, beginning a string of pitching changes for the Bears. Canion is expected to return for the afternoon's decisive Game 3. Likewise, UGA ace Morgan Montemayor had a seat early in advance of the rubber match.

And that fourth inning. Oh, the fourth inning. The Bulldogs hammered out a 10-run half-frame that included, among other things, Laura Trout's first home run of the year. Baylor responded by loading the bases and bringing in a couple runs, but never enough to put the mercy rule win in jeopardy.

The Athens Super Regional schedule: 

Baylor def. Georgia, 4-1 (1-0)

Georgia def. Baylor, 14-2 (1-1)

2011 College Softball Super Regionals: UGA Drops Game 1 To Baylor

The Georgia Bulldogs put themselves a tough spot in their opening 2011 Super Regional game in Athens, falling 4-1 to the Baylor Bears with the Women's College World Series now in doubt. Dawg Sports is disappointed with "just about everyone in red and black not named Megan Wiggins," who posted UGA's lone run on her first swing of the day.

The Bulldogs will now have to take two from the Bears in one day to reach Oklahoma City. In other action, the Florida Gators, Oklahoma St. Cowgirls and Oklahoma Sooners all assured themselves of WCWS bids.

The Athens Super Regional schedule: 

Baylor def. Georgia, 4-1 (1-)
