OKLAHOMA CITY — Brianna Hesson singled home the winning run in the fifth inning and Erin Arevalo struck out the final five batters to snuff out a Florida rally and secure a 3-2 win for Georgia on Saturday night at the Women's College World Series.
Alisa Goler hit a two-run home run in the first inning for the sixth-seeded Bulldogs (50-12), who immediately bounced back after Florida (49-10) came back to tie it in the top of the fifth.
Megan Wiggins was hit by a pitch with one out and moved up on Goler's single before scoring on Hesson's RBI single to right.
The Gators' loss meant that both of last year's finalists and all four of the top seeds in this year's NCAA tournament have been eliminated.
Brittany Schutte hit her third home run of the day for Florida.
