Georgia Vs. Alabama Baseball: Bulldogs End The Season With A 6-4 Loss To Crimson Tide

Georgia fell to Alabama 6-4 and lost for the second straight night to Alabama and lost the series two games to one. In the season finale, Georgia did get out to a 3-0 lead after three innings, but then the pitching for Georgia started to go down hill when Chase Hawkins replaced starting pitcher Luke Crumley with less than stellar results.

Hawkins only pitched 1/3 of an inning but he gave up three hits, walked a batter but most importantly gave up a pair of runs which tied the game at three.

In the seventh inning Georgia had a chance to blow open the game when they loaded the bases with one out and sent freshman pinch-hitter Nelson Ward to the plate, but he lined a shot back up the middle which resulted in a fielders choice. However, that play did score a run to make it 4-3 for Georgia.

With a one run lead and heading into the bottom of the eighth inning the relief pitching came up short again as Blake Dieterich gave up two runs and his replacement Pete Nagel gave up another run which gave Alabama a 6-4 lead.

In their last attempt to tie the game Alabama's Trey Pilkington shutdown the Georgia bats in the ninth inning to secure the win for Alabama.

The Georgia offense struggled as they went 2-for-17 with runners in scoring position and left left 14 on base.
